Eagle County School District's Transportation Department provides safe and efficient transportation for all riders.
We use SMART tag bus passes to ensure bus riders get on and off at their correct stops, as well as provide parents and guardians a way to confidently track their students progress on their way to and from school.
Find your student's Bus route information
Information on bus routes are not posted publicly. To see your child's bus information, you will need to sign in to the SMART tag Parent Portal. This will show their bus, stop, and times. To create an account, you will need your student's ID number (also known as the S#, but without the "S."), their date of birth, and their campus location. Parents/guardians are encouraged to check SMART tag often as times change with new enrollment or bus stop changes. Learn more about SMART tag, and why we chose it.
If you need assistance with signing into the portal or have any SMART tag questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 855-604-6344.
For general transportation questions, contact the Transportation Department at 970-328-2744. Para espańol: 970-328-2743.
Bus PASS information
SMART tag bus passes are required to ride the bus. All ECSD students that wish to ride the bus will be required to produce their bus pass each time they ride their assigned school bus. Eligible riders will initially receive free a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) card, much like a ski pass, that will be required for the student to board the bus. The assigned card will be good for the life of the student's ECSD career.
For the security of the student, photos will not appear on the face of the card. All individual student information will be stored on a password-protected system, that only the parent/guardian of the student assigned to the individual RFID card will be able to access.
Replacement Bus Passes
If your child has lost their pass please call 970-328-2744 for assistance, or go to myschoolbucks.com. The cost for a replacement bus pass is $5.00, plus graduating student behavior reports up to the loss of riding privileges for the remainder of the school year.
- Once the $5.00 is received in our office we will print the new pass and get it to the bus driver usually within 2 days.
- Support@smart-tag.net can link siblings together or call them @ 855-604-6344 with any questions
Bus passes are the property of Eagle County School District and to be used for school district purposes only. PLEASE DO NOT PUNCTURE! For the safety of all students bus passes are required to ride any school bus. Purposefully damaging the pass card by punching holes, chewing or defacing the card in any way will be considered an act that may cause a 3-day suspension from riding the bus and requires the purchase of a replacement pass. All costs associated with replacing a pass are the sole responsibility of the student and parent or legal guardian.
Please explain to your child that drivers do not wait for running students. Most student accidents happen from slipping and falling while running. To discourage this unsafe practice, we don't wait for runners and instead ask that children arrive at their five minutes prior to the bus stop arrival time to catch the bus.
