In addition, busing is provided for students with special needs that make it difficult for them to get to school, to transport athletes to and from athletic events, and for enrichment field trips.

Some students utilize the city's SMAT transportation system between home and school. Reduced rates for students are available. Fares: Regular $1.50 Student with student ID $1.25 Fares subject to change without notice. Must have exact fare as drivers do not carry change.




Effective 8/19/20, SMAT busses are now running their regular routes FREE OF CHARGE (due to COVID-related funding). Bus passes are not required at this time. 


Free SMAT bus passes are AVAILABLE! To apply:


  • Visit the Abel Maldonado Center at 600 South McClelland. Hours are daily from 12:30 - 8:30.
  • Parents must apply in person with their student(s).  Students must bring their ID card or school schedule.  
  • To qualify, parents must be receiving some sort of government assistance, such as food stamps, WIC, Medi-cal, or free/reduced lunch, but proof of these services is not required.
  • By signing the application, parents agree to allow their under-aged student to ride the city bus on their own, and will release the center from liability. 
  • One application is good for a year, but students must go in every month to turn in the previous months bus pass in order to obtain a new month pass.  If a student loses their bus pass prior to the end of the month, they will not be issued a replacement until the next month.
