Rainbow Route Application

The mission of Rainbow Route is to provide safe and efficient transportation service for preschool aged children in Austin, who otherwise may not be able to attend preschool due to a transportation barrier. This service is not only meant to be trusted and reliable but is meant to be an affordable option for parents.  

All information must be filled in completely.  Applications WILL NOT be considered if any information is missing.  Bus rides are $1 each way. There are many factors that go into bus placement such as pick up and drop off address, pre-school location and time of class.  Therefore, we cannot guarantee spots on the Rainbow Route for any child.  We do our very best to get as many children on the bus as possible. 

This form is for the current 2017-2018 school year. If you are intending to apply for the Rainbow Route for the upcoming school year (2018-2019) you must fill out the form at the link below:
