Student Bus Transportation
Northbrook District 28 offers bus transportation to any family who requests it. District 28 does not fall under the districts required by Illinois School Code to provide bus service. Parents can sign up for transportation during the registration process or by contacting their school's administrative assistant after registration.
The bus fees for 2023-24 are $526 for the first rider per family, $409 for the second rider, and $293 for the third, with no fees for a fourth rider.
Young Explorers bus fee is $846.
The Board of Education set the fees to help offset increased costs of transportation.
Sign up for Bus Service
Parents should contact their school's administrative assistant (during June) or the Northbrook Junior High office (during July at 847-498-7920) to sign up for bus service for the 2023-24 school year.
Families may elect to sign up after the school year has started by contacting the school administrative assistant.

Bus route assignments will be communicated to families the week before school starts. If you have a question regarding the route or stop assignment, please contact Dan Fritsche at First Student, (847) 724-7200 or via email.
If you are experiencing any difficulties with bus service, please contact your school administrative assistant.
