Owen High School and Owen Middle School together provide transportation for middle and high school students throughout the Swannanoa Valley and Black Mountain area.

Students who live in Swannanoa are transported on Owen High School buses.  If you have questions about a route or pick-up and drop-off times, please call the Owen High School office at (828)686-3852.

Students who live in the Black Mountain area are transported by Owen Middle School buses. If you have questions about a route or pick-up and drop-off times, please call the Owen Middle School Office at (828)686-7739.

In order to ride a bus that is not a student's regularly assigned bus, the student must bring a note from a parent with the reason for the change, the parent's signature, and a phone number where the parent can be reached.  Notes should be turned in to the front office prior to the start of the school day.  Parents will be called to verify notes and students should pick the note up from the front office at lunch time.  Notes are then given to the driver of the bus before a student will be allowed to ride.
