School Bus

School Bus in the School Year 2021/2022

 

Pupils in years 1 to 5 of primary school, who live more than 2 km (the shortest walking distance) from the ESM Primary School in Fasangarten, are entitled to a place on school bus provided by the City of Munich (if NOT using the public transport option – MVV Card).

 

In the school year  2021/22 there is only one option for school bus transport to ESM Fasangarten:
– departing from a bus stop near your home address (maximum 1 km away)

 

Use of School Bus by Kindergarten Kinder:
Kindergarten children with primary school siblings taking the school bus may also apply for a place on the same school bus. As a gesture of goodwill, the City of Munich will provide a bus place for these kindergarten children as long as free places are still available.  Please be aware that a kindergarten child may have to give up this place during the school year, if a school pupil entitled to a place on the school bus needs it.

 

Note for separated parents:
Unfortunately, double registration is not possible because the City of Munich only subsidizes one transport application per child. Nevertheless, the other parent can inform the EV-ESM office about the second home address on a voluntary basis. The children of separated parents could be serviced in two school buses as a gesture of goodwill from the city of Munich, as long as the school bus route it permits and/or free bus places are available. The second address should already be entered and stored in the EV-ESM Booking System, under My Profile, Additional Contact Person.

 

Residence outside Munich:
Parents must cover 20% of the costs for children who live outside Munich. In the coming school year 2021/2022, the EV-ESM will charge parents an advance payment for school bus transport costs.

The advance payment for non-resident families for the coming school year 2021/2022 is 725 EUR per child. This advance payment will be the same for all families, regardless of the distance from the school. The same principle will apply to the school buses as to the MVV Card.

As soon as the final invoice from the City of Munich is sent to the EV-ESM in the following school year, this will be passed on to the concerned parents of the non-residing children accordingly (credit or additional payment).

 

Additional important information:
Please note that the EV-ESM has no influence on the bus companies chosen by the City of Munich and their cooperating parties. In addition, both the bus routes and the division of the children in the buses are carried out by the City of Munich/Munich Transport Corporation (MVG) and NOT by the Parents’ Association. The MVG is entitled to adjust stops, routes and departure times every year.

We would also like to remind you that the school bus drivers are not childminders. If parents do not want their child to be left alone at the roadside, then they must make sure to come to the bus stop on time.

We have set up an emergency telephone number, on which the bus companies communicate significant delays or complete failures, so that we can inform the affected parents and the school via email as early as possible.

Please also note that the school buses provided by the City of Munich depart directly after school lessons. If your child visits After School Care or Extra-Curricular Courses, you can also book EV-ESM Shuttle for those days.
