The Bavarian International School provides a bus system which serves over 80% of the BIS community. Our transportation service is optional. The prices are calculated to cover costs. The costs of the service are divided up equally among the users by zones. Routes, stops and travel times are likely to change during the year and also from year to year.
We will try to accommodate a pick up/drop off point as close as possible to your home. In case a public bus stop is close to your home we have to use this one. Please be informed our bus fees are calculated for one year and have to be paid in two installments (1st semester / 2nd semester). Bus fees are not refundable.
For further information please feel free to contact our Transport Manager:
We do our best to accommodate all applicants.
