New Trier High School provides bus transportation services through Alltown Bus Service, Inc. In order to best serve the needs of the District and families, bus routes will be developed after Friday, July 5, 2019 deadline. Routes were determined based on the locations of families needing bus service. 

Any registration received after Friday, July 5, 2019 will be accepted only if space is available on existing routes. If space is not available, students will be placed on a wait list for the appropriate route. Bus requests will be processed in the order they are received from the waitlist. The routes will not be altered to accommodate late registrations, so your child will be placed at the bus stop nearest to your home. Please email lambertf@nths.net with your child's name and student number to be placed on the waitlist.
