Download Your Bus Pass
Bus passes are now available and should be downloaded from Aspen. Here are the instructions for downloading the pass:
1) Log into Aspen
2) Click on Family Tab at the top
3) Click on Child's Name
4) Click on Documents Side Tab
5) Look for and download Bus Pass 2023-2024 document
Once the pass is downloaded and printed, it can be attached to your student’s backpack or bookbag. Some families use a luggage tag or a clear sleeve with carabiner to attach the bus pass. It can also be carried inside the backpack, though easy access to the pass is helpful.
Secondary students with a smartphone can download or display a screenshot of the bus pass on their devices.
Please do not board a bus without a bus pass.
If you have any questions about bus passes or new registrations, please contact the NPS transportation department at:
