A Paw Pass will be issued to the student the first time free of charge. If a student has a Paw Pass from previous years, they can continue to use it. Please do not punch holes or staple Paw Pass or they will not work.
When families enroll a pre-school student and are looking to register their student to ride a Mapleton bus, the parent/guardian must complete and sign a pre-school registration form. Once the completed registration form has been delivered to Mapleton Transportation Department, a Transportation scheduler will process the registration which may take a few days and will then contact parent/guardian with the bus schedule. The Paw Pass will be issued at the time the registration form has been delivered. Please do not punch holes or staple Paw Pass or they will not work.

A student will be allowed to board the bus for up to 5 days during the school year without a Paw Pass. The bus driver will call the parent/guardian on the 3rd day to inform them that student does not have a Pass and needs to obtain one. The bus driver will again call the parent/guardian on the 5th day to inform them that the student will not be allowed to ride the bus without a Pass. If your student has lost or damaged their Paw Pass, a parent/guardian may purchase a new Pass at the Mapleton Transportation Department (591 E 80th Ave., Denver, 80229). Replacement Paw Passes are $3.00 each. We accept cash or check.
