Badger Bus (Yellow Bus) Info & Routes

West Fitchburg Badger Bus Routes

*These are the areas not serviced by Metro in the West attendance area.

We have worked closely with Badger Bus to develop safe transportation guidelines. Masks will continue to be required on buses, per the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention order. Given that all students will be wearing masks, we will be allowing up to three students per seat, when needed. Yellow bus seating protocol will be established for grades 4K–8 by each individual school.

Bus Stop Reminders 

Please remember to arrive at the bus stop at least 5 minutes prior to the published stop time. Please note that PM (drop off) times have been estimated. Please be aware: 

  • The bus could be early, but will wait until the established drop off time.
  • The bus could be late due to road conditions, traffic, student interaction, and so on.

Parents/Guardians must assume responsibility for student safety while walking to, waiting at and walking from bus stop locations. Students in grades K-8 are dropped off at their bus stops in the afternoon regardless of adults being present. If your student needs someone to greet and walk home with them from the bus stop, you will need to arrange for this.
