Subscription Busing Guidelines
 

The Piscataway Board of Education offers subscription busing for non-remote students whose transportation is non-mandated. Non-mandated transportation applies to K through 8th grade students who live under two miles (2.0) from their school, and 9th through 12th grade students who live under two-and-a-half miles (2.5) from the high school as per N.J.S.A. 18A:39-1 and specified under the criteria of N.J.A.C 6A:27-2.2. 

All subscription busing applications are to be completed online and submitted with payment on or before June 30th of the current school year to receive guaranteed seating.  Registration for subscription busing for the 2016-2017 school year will be available beginning Monday, May 2, 2016. Assignment to routes will be based on a first come first served basis, depending on availability along your bus route, once application and payment is received. Families with more than one child attending the same school will receive a 15% discount.  Any families who wish to participate in the subscription busing program must be currently registered in the district prior to applying.

All applications received after June 30th will be considered a “late application”, and will be placed on a waiting list. Wait list applications will be reviewed after September 15th, and as seat(s) become available, your payment will be processed and we will notify you by mail of your childs' bus assignment with details.

Students will be assigned to existing bus stops on existing routes based on availability closest to their home. No changes or requests for additional routes or stops will be added. Late buses are solely for active bus students who stay for extra curricular activities/athletics and they must have a valid AM/PM bus pass, their pass from the advisor/coach, and use only existing stops on existing activity routes. Please note: any student retained for detention purposes may not utilize the late bus. All students participating in the subscription busing program are subject to all rules and regulations regarding bus discipline and safety procedures as specified in the student code of conduct book and board policy 5131 et. seq. 

The subscription busing fee for the 2016-2017 school year is $425. The fee can be paid online using a debit/credit card by clicking on "Community Pass Online Registration" on the district homepage, www.piscatawayschools.org, or via check/money order paid to the Piscataway Board of Education, 1515 Stelton Road, Piscataway NJ 08854. All fees are “non refundable” and late applications will only be accepted on a seat available basis.  

All families who qualified for Free/Reduced Lunch last year (year prior to which you’re applying) will be eligible for subscription busing with proper documentation/verification at a reduced rate.
