The City of Pekin Bus Department offers paid bus passes for students who do not qualify for free bus transportation based on location (1 ½ miles from school) and/or a state-identified hazard. These paid bus passes are approved/denied by the City of Pekin Bus Department based on their ability to provide the requested transportation.
If you are interested in applying for a paid bus pass, please complete the Google Form found here. https://forms.gle/jafzcRprnDrWAqxZ6 You must complete the form for each student.
