The Goshen Local School District and Petermann are committed to providing students a safe ride to and from school. Transportation is provided for all Goshen students including alternative transportation to Live Oaks as well as several parochial and private schools in the area.

Your student's bus route

Bus routes are updated/created during the summer and will be made available in FinalForms.

Log into FinalForms and under the Transportation tab to find pick up and drop off times and bus numbers for your student. 

The Bus Guide can be a useful tool for you in case you have questions about student bus numbers, pick-up times, or drop-off times.

A student's bus stop is usually at a nearby crossing street or corner although some rural roads in the district require door-to door service.

For safety reasons, buses do not enter cul-de-sacs or dead-end streets except for students with special needs as required by state law or special circumstances that may need Board approval. Students may have to walk up to half a mile to their bus stop.

As always we reserve the right to adjust routes throughout the year.

For specific questions regarding transportation, contact Director of Transportation Joe Williford at (513) 722-2229.

Shared Parenting Transportation Form

In order to design our routes we need families with shared parenting that results in a need for alternate transportation to fill out the attached form. Once the form is completed the transportation department will review route changes and communicate the necessary details. Custody paperwork will be required for the shared parenting transportation to be approved.

Emergency Bus Pass

Students are able to request a temporary bus pass for special/emergency situations. To obtain a temporary bus pass, parents must complete an emergency form 24 hours in advance explaining the reason. If approved and space is available, the student will be given a temporary bus pass that will allow them to board the receiving bus. No Pass/No Ride. This is for student safety and will allow us to practice consistent safety regulations
