Transportation Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some of the most commonly asked questions about Broken Arrow Public Schools transportation:


What are the factors that determine whether my student can ride the bus or not?

  • Students residing over one and one-half (1.5) miles from their home school are eligible for transportation
  • Transportation routing software determines distance, “as the road lies”. The software will take every path (on the road) from the student’s home to the school to establish distance
  • Students residing less than 1.5 miles from their school will be in designated, “parent transport areas.”

How do I locate my student’s route number, bus stop and pickup and drop-off times?

Select the E-Link tab within the Bus Route system. Type your student’s ID number (lunch number) into both the username and the password fields. It will then ask you to change the password. Put your student’s ID number in the username and whatever you choose as your new password into the password box. Another screen will pop up. At the top, click on "Students". Then select "View My Student". Click on your student’s name and it will then give you the route information for your student.

My student’s bus is running late either picking up at the stop or dropping off at the stop my student rides from and to. How can I find out if and when the bus is going to arrive?

From a smartphone or tablet:

Download the MyStop App via Google Play or the App Store and search “Versatrans MyStop”. Open the MyStop App. Select “Broken Arrow Public Schools (OK).” Enter the Username and Password (Student ID Number or Student Lunch Number) should be used both for the username and the password.  If your student does not know their ID number, please contact their school. For security purposes, Broken Arrow Public Schools recommends that users change their password after initial use to a password of our choice. To change your password click “Setup” and follow the prompts.

From a computer browser:

Is it possible to have a closer stop added for my student or to have my student assigned to a different stop?

Our Routing Department may or may not be able to add a closer stop or to set your student up for a different stop. You may submit a request for a closer or different stop by sending an email to babus@baschools.org and making your request. Be sure to include your student’s ID (or lunch) number, their name and grade. It is important that you explain specifically and in detail why your student may need a new stop. Normally you will hear back within 48 business hours. If you do not hear back within that time you are welcome to call our Customer Service Center at 918-259-4550 to check on the status of your request.


Can my student occasionally or permanently use a different stop or use a different stop in the morning and afternoon?

  • To ensure accountability for students transported and for emergency situations, only those students who are assigned to bus stops will be allowed to ride under normal circumstances.
  • In the event a child custody agreement is in place a parent/guardian can complete an Alternate Transportation form.
  • In the event an extreme emergency situation arises the Director of Transportation or designee may approve a temporary alternate transportation request submitted by routing staff.

Can my student ride with a friend on his friend’s bus or to his friend’s stop?

No. We do not provide courtesy transportation services.
