SOCSD’s Office of Transportation utilizes a software program to improve bus transportation efficiency and to assist parents with bus information.  

Parents may now receive push notifications from our transportation team about bus information.  Parents must download the Traversa app to a phone or tablet to receive this service.

Download the Traversa mobile application guide here with step by step instructions to register.  

You will need your child's MSIS number to connect him/her to your account.  If  you do not have your child's MSIS number, you will need to contact his/her school for that information. 

The new software program utilizes student data that parents provide to PowerSchool during registration.  If your PowerSchool information is in accurate, or if you did not request bus service, your information may be incorrect.  Contact your child's school immediately if you need to correct your information.  

Students must have a completed online registration form and must be designated as a bus rider to be assigned to bus route to ride the bus  on the first day of school. The deadline to complete online registration for bus transportation service is July 14. 

To register your child for school, go to  If you need assistance registering or designating your child as a bus rider, contact your child's school.  

Bus changes are ONLY allowed for a change of address.  A change of address requires two new proofs of residency documentation.  

Any transportation change to car rider must be received in writing no later than one hour before dismissal.

Afternoon bus transportation will be provided to MSU, Boys and Girls Club, and Project Brickfire.
