Middle/High School Students

LAVTA on freeway with other traffic


The best way to get to and from school! We operate supplemental bus service to middle and high schools in Dublin and Pleasanton during the school year, and our regular service also serves schools in Livermore and Pleasanton.  

Wheels is ready for the 2023/24 school year! Updated schedule information for routes serving Tri-Valley schools is below.


All Tri-Valley middle AND high school students are invited to participate in Wheels’ Try Transit to School promotion. Wheels is offering unlimited FREE rides to middle and high school students on all regularly scheduled bus routes from Monday, August 7th through Monday, September 4th, 2023, including weekends!

More than just a way to get to school, students can take advantage of the entire Wheels bus system to go to after school activities, work, the mall, and other fun places. Just board any regularly scheduled Wheels bus and your ride is completely FREE!
