BLDG S-4106

The Seoul Student Transportation Office ( STO ) is located in the new ACS Building, S-4106, room 121, and we are here to serve our community with safe and reliable student transportation services. Some of our duties include coordinating transportation for the daily commuting bus transportation, pre-arranging transportation for curricular and co-curricular events ( field trips, sport matches, etc ), providing school bus safety training to students, and issuing school bus passes. The Seoul STO conducts safety inspections on all school bus stops and buses used for student transportation within the commuting area. We also work closely with the school administrators, housing office, and various base commands to establish the walking and commuting areas for the local Seoul DoDDS schools. GUIDELINES FOR SCHOOL BUS TRANSPORTATION Distance requirements are one of the primary standards for school bus service. In general, elementary students, grades 6 and below, are authorized school bus services if they reside more than one mile from their authorized school. Students in grades 7 and above are authorized school bus service if they reside more than one and one half miles from school. For the Yongsan area, the entire post has been designated a ‘walking area’ as no school busing is provided except in the case of children with special education needs.

Bus stops are located in centralized areas of the school bus commuting zone. IAW DOD regulation 4500.36R, students may be required to walk to the designated bus stop. For grades 6 and below, students may be required to walk up to one mile to their bus stop. For grades 7 and above, students may be required to walk up to one and one half miles to their bus stop.
Space required students are authorized to ride on DoDDS school buses, provided they reside within the designated commuting area. Prior to renting or leasing any off base housing, members should check with the local STO to ensure that bus service is available for the area they intend to move into. It’s the parents’ responsibility to transport students to the closest bus stop within the commuting area if they reside outside the designated commuting area. Bus stops on routes are established to service the community and it’s the parents’ responsibility to ensure that the student(s) is/are catching the bus at the designated bus stop. All students should have one primary pick-up and drop-off bus stop.

Students should be at their assigned bus stop at least 10 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time. Parents, who will meet children in the afternoon, should be at the bus stop 10 minutes prior to arrival. An adult must meet students in grades K-2. Students in these grades, who are not met by an adult at the bus stop, will be brought back to the Seoul Student Transportation Office. Once returned to the STO, the parents will be contacted to pick-up the child.

NOTES OF INTEREST  Pre-registration for the upcoming school will be held in May. Place and time TBD. Parents will receive more information from the school. Questions should be directed to the school or the school registrar at 738-7707.

All students must have a new/updated photo taken prior to being issued a bus pass. Parents and students can come by the Seoul STO, Monday thru Friday, 0800 hours until 1600 hours (the office will not close for lunch) to have the photo taken. School bus passes will be available for pick-up during the middle of August. More information provided later.
Questions, problems, and concerns should be directed to the Seoul STO at 738-5032/4538
