Hello Richfield Families,

If your child rides the school bus, we invite you to sign up for Ride 360. This app provides real-time mapping for your child’s school bus location and easy access to information like their bus number, bus stop location and bus stop time. This information is already available in the app and you will also receive a postcard in the mail the week before school starts with your child’s transportation information.

Help, I don’t see any bus info!

  • If you look at the app on a Monday, you will only see Monday’s information. If your child doesn’t ride the bus on Mondays, you will not see any bus information. The app only shows route information for the specific day of the week that you are looking at the app.

  • If your student is in the walk area, or outside the district, there will be no bus information for you.

Don’t be late!

  • Please note that these are the scheduled times for your bus. It is still District policy that students need to be at their bus stop five minutes before the scheduled time.

If you have questions, please call the Transportation Department at 612-798-6075.

Here’s to a great school year!
