The Office of Transportation

Your student's school is your main source for information about eligibility for transportation services provided by Taos Municipal Schools. If you have questions about your student's eligibility for transportation, please contact his or her school. If your student is eligible, the school can provide you with the appropriate transportation application form. The form must be completed and signed by the parent or guardian, and signed by the principal. The school will send in the form for processing by TMS. If you are the parent of a child with disabilities for whom transportation is provided as part of an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or 504 Plan and your child is experiencing transportation related problems, call 575-758-5291 for immediate assistance.
