2023-2024 Transportation

ISLA transportation is provided for a fee to families within our Transportation Boundaries defined below. Families who opt to ride the bus will be billed by the school as close to the beginning of the year as possible. Monthly payments or lump sum payments will be available. Busing is free in some situations, please check the website to see if your student receives free busing. Scholarships are also available.

ISLA’s 2023-2024 school day begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 3:50 p.m. Buses aim to arrive at ISLA by 8:45 am and buses aim to depart from ISLA at 4:00 pm.

ISLA will provide bus service via Pride Transportation Company. ISLA will notify families of their stops and approximate time of pick-up and drop-off about 2 weeks before school starts. All stops within our boundaries will be neighborhood stops, meaning within walking distance and generally within a couple of blocks from the resident student’s home.  

If your student's bus is running late, you may check the parent app (details will be sent closer to the start of the school year).

The ISLA Transportation Boundary is shown in red shading below and includes students who live east and north of 494, west of 35W/94, and south of 55. All of the Edina district, shown with green shading, is included by this boundary. The Hopkins School District is shown in blue. The portions of the Hopkins School District that are outside of the red ISLA Boundary only receive busing for resident Legacy Riders (defined below).

Families of students who will not ride the bus will provide their own transportation to ISLA and will not be charged the busing fee.

  • 2023-2024 Busing Zone:

The 2023-2024 fee for bus riders is $585.00 per student for the year with a maximum household rate of $1170.00 per year. This is a flat rate regardless of whether

  • the rider lives within the ISLA Transportation Boundary or is privately transported to an established stop
  • the rider rides to/from different stops on different days
  • the student rides to school only, from school only, or to and from school.

Note: For your planning purposes, we anticipate a 20-30% increase in these fees over the next 1-2 school years. See the website for financial assistance options.
