Hello OPB Families!
After you’ve paid your final 2017-18 OPB balance and $10 Bus ID fee, your child’s bus pass will be delivered in a sealed envelope to your building’s lobby personnel/Front Desk – look for it the next week or so.
THIS BUS PASS MUST BE ATTACHED TO THE CHILD’S BACKPACK AND CLEARLY VISIBLE FOR THE DRIVER WHEN BOARDING THE BUS AT ALL TIMES.
If this is your first time using the OPB service and are not familiar with how to attach the bus loop to your child’s backpack:
You will notice some important information on the back of the bus pass:
You or your child may need to reach the bus company or school for many reasons (some examples: Was something forgotten on the bus? Is the bus late and you’re wondering about its location or estimated time of arrival?) – it is the parent’s/child’s responsibility to call the numbers on back if there are issues like this. Remember, the OPB is a PRIVATE, volunteer run transportation service that is not a part of CPS or Ogden International … the parent volunteers just negotiate the bus contract, arrange payment and get this service off the ground at the beginning of every year. If there are personal issues like lost items or wondering where the bus is, please call the Ai Bus # on the back of the pass. This year, we’ve also included the different campus numbers and the blog address so that students can have easy access from their phones as well.
Look for your individualized bus passes very soon!
