    Signing Up For Transportation During Online Registration
    You will be asked if your student needs a Metro bus token or an ASA Bus. Please be sure to input “yes” if your student will require one of these methods of transportation. HOST will have two ASA buses this year that serve areas north and west of HIMS. Only families that mark “yes” to activity bus will have their student’s name sent to be assigned to an activity bus route. ASA buses are scheduled to depart HIMS at 5:45 pm.

    Students participating in school authorized programs are welcome to ride an ASA bus with parent/guardian permission.  Buses depart from HIMS at 5:45pm.  There will be two buses that serve areas north, west, and south west. There are NO buses that serve students who live east of HIMS.  If your neighborhood does not fall into tour service area, your student can receive a Metro bus token. Students who live within 1.5 miles of Hamilton ARE NOT eligible for the ASA bus. A students "regular" bus stop IS NOT always the same for the ASA bus. 

    NOTE: Transportation needs 7-10 working days to assign an after-school bus route. You student's regular school bus IS NOT the same bus during after-school activities.
