Transportation Options

 

Marian High School offers limited bus transportation to assist families in the surrounding communities. Please see the overview of each route below for more information. For more specific details, please contact the Marian Transportation Manager.

Each year, Marian High School reviews its bus routes and interest expressed by families in utilizing bus transportation. Marian reserves the right to alter bus routes and schedules according to the needs of its constituency.

Bus Passes

Individual bus rides may be purchased for occasional use of the bus transportation service. The cost for one bus ride is $5, and may be purchased in the Marian High School Main Office.

A limited number of bus passes are also available for purchase in the Marian High School Main Office. With this pass, a student has 10 rides on the bus transportation. The cost of one bus pass is $50.

Bus Schedule for Early Dismissal Days

Afternoon bus transportation schedules continue on days when Marian ends its school day early, unless specifically announced. Busses leave the Marian campus 10 minutes after dismissal.

Weather Delays

When severe weather conditions cause Marian to delay the start of the school day, bus schedules will be adjusted by exactly the same amount of time that school is delayed. If school is delayed two hours, buses should be expected to also be delayed two hours.

Due to the volatile nature of weather events and unpredictable road conditions, patience in arrival of buses to bus stops is requested. The safety of the students, the bus driver, and the driving community are our primary concern. No students being transported by the Marian school bus will be penalized for late arrival at school during these severe weather days.
