Transportation to PCD

Busing Provided by Local School Districts

Here are the key dates and points of information:

  • The deadline for transportation requests is July 31, 2016. Transportation request forms submitted after August 1, 2016, will receive the closest point of pick up or a depot stop location for a temporary bus stop. Students will receive their permanent bus stop information after September 16, 2016.
  • Parents who are new to the statewide system will receive a letter with information about the system before the start of school.
  • In order to keep ride times within reasonable limits, bus stops that are used infrequently (less than once a week) will be deactivated, and students will be assigned to the nearest active bus stop.
  • The historic transportation regions are still in place, which means that transportation will only be provided within regional boundaries.
For questions and additional information contact the statewide system manager’s office.
