South Side Bus Transportation Group
South side student transportation is organized by a non-profit, parent-led group, South Side Bus Transportation (SBT), created specifically to support families of Allegan County in the Saugatuck, Hamilton, Overisel, Oakland and south Holland areas with busing to Holland Christian Schools. SBT hosts several fundraisers throughout the year to help keep transportation costs affordable, and families that participate earn money to offset the cost of busing. Contact them to learn more!
