Eligibility for Transportation
General education school bus service is available in grades K - 6 only, for students who meet eligibility requirements. Students in grades 7 - 12 receive school bus service only under special circumstances. Most students use public transportation.
Transportation Exceptions allow students with special circumstances to get transportation, even if they live close to school. Visit the Office of Pupil Transportation's website at www.optnyc.org to review these services and complete the application or contact the students school.
Children in Temporary Housing
Students who have been placed in temporary housing receive free transportation, no matter how old they are or where they are living. This applies to all general and special education students in grades K-12.
