The Seoul Student Transportation Office (STO) ( located at BLDG S-4106, the new ACS Bldg ) is here to serve your community with safe and reliable student transportation services. Some of our duties include coordinating transportation for daily commuting, extracurricular events (sporting events...etc), curricular events (required field trips), after school activity buses, the cooperative work experience program, and special needs students. We provide bus safety training to preschool through grade 8 students and develop inclement weather response plans. The Seoul STO conducts safety/operation inspections on all buses, bus routes, and bus stops used for busing. We also work closely with school administrators and military commands to establish commuting/walking zones, and investigate/resolve all student behavior concerns on our vehicles.


Parents are reminded that :
a) Registration for the next school year will be held during the Spring at Hannam Village and the High School Gym. Each school will forward more information at a later date.

b) To register for transportation you will need to bring a copy of the 600 for each student. All students must have a new/updated photo taken prior to being issued a bus pass.

c) For safety and security reasons students are required to show a bus pass when entering the bus to/from school, and are only authorized to ride their assigned bus route. Students must also ride their assigned school bus for safety and security reasons. Failure to do so could result in a 5-day suspension from the school bus.

d) Please consult the Seoul Student Transportation Office for details on the area walking/commuting zones prior to entering into a rental agreement.

If you have any questions please contact the Seoul Student Transportation Office at DSN (738-5032 or commercial at 02-7918-5032).
