Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)
|Q: My child has special needs. Who do I contact to make arrangements to get my child picked up?||A: Contact our department at 732-946-1832 x3435 or x2472.|
|Q: Why does my bus come so early?||A: It is quite a challenge trying to coordinate the schedules for more than 30 buses and nearly 4,000 students. Bus routes are run to be as efficiently as possible. Student loads and the distance to the school are only two of the factors that go into determining the routes and start times. The school's start time is another factor.|
|Q: Why can't the bus stop in front of my house?||
A: The overwhelming consideration in determining the location of bus stops is the safety of our students. Certain situations, such as sharp curves in a road, are avoided so drivers will have a clear view of a stopped bus and will be able to stop in time. Stops are placed in locations where they will provide a safe and convenient location for the most students while helping us route our buses in the most efficient manner possible.
|Q: Who do I contact if I have a question about a bus stop or route?||A: If you have concerns regarding the location of your child's bus stop or any other questions about a bus stop (time, etc.), please contact the Transportation Coordinator, Nicole Collins, 732-946-1832 x3425 or x2472.|
