Castro Valley Unified School District is pleased to be welcoming students back for the 2022-2023 school year!

Due to limited space, some of the routes and schedules have more applicants than we have space available. We will be offering a lottery for the bus passes again this year. A waitlist for future passes will be generated if needed during this lottery.

At this time there are 3 types of passes being offered. They are as follows: Annual, Fall semester only, and Spring semester only. All passes are good for both AM and PM.

Bus route can be viewed here. All route stop locations and times are for 2022-2023 school year. Review routes carefully as there are changes from previous years.

ROUTE A CVHS 5 CANYONS/PALOMARES and CVE middle school only

ROUTE B PROCTOR/LAKE CHABOT middle school only

ROUTE C STANTON area/BART middle school only

ROUTE D 5 CANYONS/PALOMARES middle school only

CREEKSIDE Wednesday Morning Collaboration

For the lottery, you can only sign up for one bus stop location. This stop will be for both pick up and drop off. If your student needs an additional pick up or drop off location (after school tutoring, day care, multiple family addresses), this will need to be authorized thru the Transportation Department after the first day of school.


ANNUAL -------------------------$565.00


Fall semester        8-9-2022 – 12-22-2022

Spring semester   12-23-2022 – 6-2-2023


To sign up for the lottery, please select the desired route and stop while filling out the Google registration form below. If you are entering more than one student, you will need to fill out a separate registration form for each student. If either of your students are drawn the other student in the same family will automatically be selected as well.

To ensure privacy, for the lottery process, we will utilize the STUDENT NUMBER (a 4 digit number for middle school students and a 5 digit number for high school students) found in the AERIES Portal. During the registration we will need both the STUDENT ID NUMBER and the STUDENT NUMBER. Please refer to the AERIES Portal before registering your student to ensure a smooth process.




Lottery signup will close at 9:00 am Friday June 10 2022. We will email the date and time of the lottery draw to every registered applicant. The lottery draw will be broadcast via ZOOM. The ZOOM link will be emailed to you 24 hours before the drawing.

If your student’s name is drawn, the Transportation Department will notify you by email. All selected students will need to go to the Adult School office after July 11 2022 to purchase your new pass and have a new picture taken for their new pass.

Previous years passes will not be accepted.
