Register to Ride the School Bus!

Register to Ride the Bus

We are excited to be introducing this October a student ridership program called SMARTtag which will change how our students ride the bus. However, to ensure a smooth launch of the SMARTtag system and implement the new technology, we require each child that rides the bus to register for transportation this year. 

If you're planning for your child/children to use the school bus this year in any way, which includes to/from school and athletics, please fill out the registration form linked above. Complete one form per student riding the bus. This registration procedure ensures that we can offer safe and dependable transportation for your child(ren)
  • Students that receive specialized education transportation services do not need to register (i.e IEP or McKinney-Vento). This will be done for you through Special Services.
  • Students do not qualify for transportation services if they reside in a walking zone or have been approved for In-District transfer.
  • Although this isn’t a requirement for your child to ride the bus on the 1st day of school, we encourage you to complete the form as soon possible to ensure your child is registered in the SMARTtag system and receives a badge to ride the bus in October.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact our Transportation Department at 509.787.2915

Thank you!

What is SMARTtag?

The Quincy School District will soon be launching SMARTtag, which will change how students ride the bus. These exciting changes will improve student safety and security while riding their bus. SMARTtag is a student ridership authorization solution, which, simply put, will ensure each child is getting on the right bus and off at the right stop.

How it Works

Each student will be issued a SMARTtag card, similar to this one.

Students will scan this card on a card reader when they get on the bus and when they get off. SMARTtag will authorize the student, or alert the driver through the onboard tablet computer if:

  • A student attempts to get on a bus that does not go to their school
  • A student attempts to get off at a stop that is not their assigned stop
  • The SMARTtag *Parent Portal will allow parents to view their children’s riding activity, current riding status (on bus, dropped off, or has not ridden), manage text notifications, and more.

*The Quincy School District SMARTtag Parent Portal is not currently active, so you will not be able to register at this time. Please be patient while we work through the process of implementing SMARTtag. We will send out a communication when the Parent Portal is set up and open for registration.
