2021-2022 School Year Bus Information


All students who would like a bus pass for next school year (2021-2022) will need to complete the 2021-2022 Transportation Service Request Form and return it to Micki Spencer at mspencer@purcellmarian.org.


Students who reside in the Cincinnati Public School District can request a Metro bus pass in order to ride to and from school. The type of bus pass is determined by the Cincinnati Public School Transportation Office.

The privilege of having a bus pass carries certain rules and responsibilities which include but are not limited to:

  • Only those students who live more than 1.25 miles from Purcell Marian will be issued a pass.
  • The bus pass received cannot be transferred to another person.
  • If the bus pass is lost or damaged, please report this to the Main Office immediately. There is a $10.00 fee to replace a lost bus pass. For a damaged card, the fee is waived if you return the original card.
  • Misconduct on the bus, not only will result in the bus pass being confiscated but will also bring disciplinary action from the school.
  • This bus pass will only be accepted for transportation to and from Purcell Marian Monday through Friday 6:00 – 9:30 a.m. and 1:00 – 4:45 p.m.

Metro Xtra Route information is posted on the Cincinnati Public Schools website at http://www.cps-k12.org/parents-students/transportation/metro-information.
