Transportation

The last date to make bus changes, and have them be effective for the first day of school, is Thursday, Aug. 26. Requests received after this date can have up to a three week delay. Remember, alternate transportation requests do not carry over from year to year. Students are entitled to one seat, on one bus, morning and afternoon. This applies to joint custody situations as well. 

If you have moved, be sure to update your address with the registrar, before Aug. 26, to ensure there is no interruption to bus service. Please, contact Sujata Ray at 609-716-5000 x 5505 for information on how to update your address. 

Tips if you have questions on the first day of school:

 *Bus pass information for the 2021-22 school year, will be available after 5 pm on Friday, Aug. 27, 2021. Please print your child’s bus pass, and have them carry it in their backpack. 

*Arrive at your bus stop 10 minutes prior to scheduled time, to ensure no last minute rushing and running to the stop.

*Be patient while waiting! We know you are excited! However, fluctuations in schedules do happen, due to road conditions, detours, accidents, traffic volume…... If your child has waited longer than 10 minutes and the scheduled pickup time has passed; call our office to check for an update on the location of the vehicle. Do not call the office if it has been less than 10 minutes. Calling too soon ties up the phone lines unnecessarily. Also, if you are calling from a group bus stop location, designate one person to be the caller. If the whole group calls at the same time, we aren’t able to help answer your questions efficiently! 

*Talk to your children regarding the need to wear masks on the buses. All students and drivers are required to wear masks, on buses, for the 2021-22 school year. This may change as the year progresses, but for the opening, we will follow CDC, Federal Motor Carrier, and district guidelines. 

*Children will be assigned a permanent seat within the first two weeks of school. They must sit in the same seat every day. 

*District and contracted buses will be cleaned, at a minimum, once a day, to ensure safety for all riders. 

*Lost items on buses, if found, will be held by the driver at the front of the bus. Have your child speak to the driver the next time that they ride, so they may claim their item.

*If you don’t plan on having your child ride the bus, and instead wish to transport on your own, please notify the transportation dept. We will make note of the information in your child’s record. When you wish to resume transportation, just give us a call, (and three days’ notice) and we will reinstate your child on the bus.

Welcome
It is the goal of the West Windsor-Plainsboro Regional School District to provide safe and efficient transportation for all eligible students. The district provides transportation to and from school in accordance with district Board policy 8600. It is the policy of the Board to make a further distinction on the basis of grade level to define a remote distance as beyond one-half mile for students in primary schools; one mile for students in upper elementary schools and middle schools; and one and one-half miles for students in high schools.

The Transportation Department receives many requests for bus/stop changes.  These requests must be for safety reasons only, accompanied with the request application found on the district web site, and approved by the Transportation Coordinator. All requests must be submitted in writing and will be handled case by case as they are received. Any change in transportation arrangements due to change of address must be submitted to Central Registration; no exceptions can be made. Please click on a link on the left side of the page for more information about bus information, bus safety, and bus forms.

Any concerns/complaints should be forwarded to the Transportation Department by e-mail or telephone at the number listed above. Please be patient as all concerns/complaints are handled as they are received and require investigating.

Bus Changes

Please allow a minimum of three to five business days to process approved changes. All Alternate Transportation Requests must be for five days a week; there are no exceptions. Changes will appear on your Genesis account as soon as the changes are completed with the effective date of the change. Please note that bus drivers are not permitted to make changes to bus routes or stops without prior approval of the Transportation Coordinator. Also, students are only permitted to ride on the bus to which they have been assigned; students cannot change buses for any personal matters.
