Providing safe transportation for children to and from school and school-related activities is of top priority to us at HJIS. The school has contracted with a private bus company to provide safe and reliable transportation for HJIS students for an additional fee. Our fleet of buses services a large region that includes nearly all major areas of Yokohama and surrounding neighborhoods.
In order to ensure the safety of all bus riders, parents and students should become familiar with the bus rules and procedures posted on each bus.
When a school bus reaches its full capacity, wait-lists will be created and students will be able to register for using the bus once a seat becomes available. Students on wait-lists will have priority for seat registration if seats become available within the school year.
Bus routes are revised annually according to shifts in our bus riders and are designed to accommodate the transportation needs of our students as efficiently as possible with students spending an average of only 20-30 minutes on the bus. The following list is the detailed bus routes and schedules.
