As a parent, you should contact your school about their transportation services. If none is available, contact the Toledo Public Schools Transportation Department at 419-671-8541. If it is not practical for TPS to provide transportation, we can work with you to initiate a process to establish payment-in-lieu of transportation. Parents are not afforded the option of being paid for transporting their own child in cases where the service is provided by the district but is not the service parents prefer. A Request For Transportation application must be completed each school year and returned by October 1st.
