School Bus


Pupils in years 1 to 5 of primary school, who live more than 2 km (the shortest walking distance) from the 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).


You can choose one from the following transport options to ESM Fasangarten:
a) departing from a bus stop near your home address (maximum 1 km away)
b) departing from the Pschorrhöfe or Isar buildings of European Patent Office
c) departing from ESM Neuperlach


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 City of Munich covers the total cost of the school bus for children living in the City of Munich. Parents must cover 20% of the costs for children who live outside Munich. The EV-ESM charges an administration fee of 15€ for each school bus application.


 Distance Approximate annual cost participation for students living outside Munich
0 – 5 km 279 €
5 – 10 km 478 €
10 – 15 km 638 €
more than 15 km 721 €




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.


Kindergarten children without siblings may only apply for a place on the school bus – option b) to and from the EPO premises (Pschorrhöfe and Isar buildings). Any remaining places are handed out according to the date of receipt of the application.


Please be aware that a kindergarten child may have to give up his place during the school year, if a school pupil entitled to a place on the bus needs it.


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 garderie or extra-curricular courses, you can also book shuttle bus ESM-EPO for those days.
