Transportation Fees

    The La Mesa-Spring Valley School District charges a fee for providing bus transportation service to students from home-to-school of residence. Possession of a current Bus Pass/Single Ride Ticket entitles a student to ride to and from their designated school and bus stop on their assigned bus. The Bus Pass/Single Ride Ticket must be presented when the student boards the bus. If you have any questions please call the Transportation Office at 619 668-5767, 8:00am-4:00pm. 
    Free and reduced fare transportation is available to children whose families meet certain low-income guidelines and who reside within the appropriate transportation area.  

    The Transportation Fee Program provides the option of purchasing an Annual Bus Pass, Half Year Bus Pass or Single-Ride Tickets/Ticket Books.

    We accept cash, checks made out to LMSV, or money orders. We cannot accept debit/credit cards at this time.
