Special Payment Program

Transportation for children who reside less than one mile from school is available subject to conditions

  • A transportation program for children who reside less than one mile from school is available subject to the following conditions:

    • Prior to the initiation of transportation services a fee shall be paid for at least one semester of transportation services. The fee shall be:
      • Round Trip (to and from school): $250.00 per semester ($500.00 per year)
      • One Way (pick up or drop off): $125.00 per semester ($250.00 per year)
      • If requesting transportation for less than a full semester, the daily rate for transportation is $2.86 per day (both ways). One way is $1.43 per day.
    • All pick-ups and drop-offs must be at the existing bus stops. No bus stops shall be added that are less than one mile.
    • Transportation services will be provided on a space-available basis. If a student resides more than one mile, thus becoming eligible for free bus service and if a bus is at capacity, the child who was the last one to receive paid bus service will be the first one to be dropped until another seat becomes available. If more than one student becomes eligible for the free bus service, the same procedure will apply to gain the additional space.
    • A written letter of request must be submitted by the parent or guardian of a child stating the reason for requesting transportation and agreeing to the above conditions.
    • Parents who wish to apply for the transportation service are requested to submit the written request, accompanied with the transportation fee, to your child's school.
