Several transportation options make it easier for families to get to and from Emerson every day, including buses and self-coordinated carpools.

Carpool Map

It’s easy to find other Emerson families who live nearby and coordinate carpool groups with the ESPO Carpool Map. Only families who opt-in to participate are visible on the map, and only those who participate can view it. If you would like to participate:

  1. Opt in by completing the Google Form here.
  2. You will receive an email from notifying you that you have permission to view the map.
  3. View the ESPO Carpool Map here, find families who live nearby, and reach out directly using the contact information provided.

Please contact if you have any questions.

AAPS Bus Service

Bus service is available to all families who live in the Ann Arbor Public Schools district at no cost (families pay for this via taxes). The schedule may vary by school year, but all families with students who intend to ride the AAPS to or from Emerson must register at the beginning of the school year. See the Family Handbook for more information.
