YONGSAN GARRISON, Republic of Korea - School bus passes for children who have already registered will be available for pick-up after Aug. 13.

Returning students who have not yet renewed their passes must do so before school starts, said Ken Bakameyer, DODDS transportation specialist.

"Each year, bus riders must renew their photos for their passes," Bakameyer said. "We have a pretty good percentage that has not yet come in, and we invite them to stop by as soon as possible to renew their passes."

To help parents avoid long lines at the DODDS School Bus Transportation Office, officials have arranged two special pick-up events:
• Hannam Commissary, 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Aug. 15 (for Hannam Village residents only)
• Main Exchange, 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Aug. 16

To register a new student for a bus pass or to renew a pass, students must visit the school bus transportation office in Bldg. 4106. For information, call 738-5032.
