Transportation

In accordance with Chancellor’s Regulation A-801 (see below for regulation with translations) , the DOE provides transportation to all eligible New York City students in public, charter, and non-public schools. In partnership with the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA)(Open external link) and our school age and preschool bus companies, our mission is to ensure safe and reliable transportation to and from school.

See Transportation Rights for what you and your child can expect from DOE transportation services.

Types of Transportation Service

Transportation services that are available to families vary by school and by each child’s eligibility for those services.

  • At minimum, schools will provide student MetroCards to eligible students
  • Schools may also offer stop-to-school bus service if sufficient students meet busing eligibility criteria
  • Curb-to-school or specialized bus service is provided to students whose medical, health, or disability-related conditions or special circumstances prevent them from being able to walk or utilize other forms of transportation to get to and from school.

Why is the Bus Late?

Sometimes buses are delayed because of traffic congestion or mechanical failure. Check our bus delays(Open external link) page to see if your child’s route has been affected.
