District Busing via Kobussen

The Oshkosh Area School District (OASD) provides free school bus transportation, via Kobussen Buses LTD., to students who live outside of the Oshkosh city limits or who live in various areas without sidewalks. Each August the District mails a letter to households with children who meet the District's eligibility guidelines. OASD students who do not live in areas served by school buses can choose to ride city buses (see GO Transit information below).

City Busing via GO Transit

The Oshkosh Area School District partners with GO Transit to offer free city bus rides for all students. This access began in September 2019 and is made possible through a partnership between the OASD, City of Oshkosh, and private funders.

Updates for 2023-2024 School Year

Beginning September 1, 2023, middle and high school students must have a new GO Transit Student Bus Pass (printed bus pass with photo ID) for the 2023-2024 school year. 

  • Middle and high school students must show the bus driver their Student Bus Pass when boarding to receive a free ride.
  • Elementary students do not need a pass.

ACTION NEEDED: Middle/high school students must complete the GO Transit Bus Pass Form.

  • STEP 1: Fill out the form. (If a student is under the age of 18, the form will need to be signed by a parent or legal guardian.)
  • STEP 2: Return the form to a GO Transit Office. (Form will be verified by GO Transit. GO Transit will take a photo of the student for ID. ID will be printed and given to student.)
    • Office Locations and Hours for Student ID Processing:
      • Dempsey Trail Office (926 Dempsey Trail): Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.  
      • Downtown Transit Center Office (110 Pearl Ave): Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.  

CONDUCT EXPECTATIONS: Students are expected to be responsible transit riders and as part of the program, students agree to follow the GO Transit Ridership Policy. GO Transit drivers and staff reserve the right to refuse service and failure to follow GO Transit ridership rules may result in suspension of a student’s bus pass. Regular fares apply without a Student Bus Pass.

CONTACT: Any questions about the new bus pass can be directed to GO Transit at 920.232.5340.
