Transportation to and from school is available for students in the Montclair Public School District who meet the eligibility requirements. These requirements are based on the shortest walking distance from the students’ residence to the school they are attending.  According to board policy, transportation will be provided for the following students:

  • All elementary students who reside 1 mile or more from their assigned district school.
  • All middle school students who reside 1 mile or more from their assigned district school.
  • All high school students who reside 2.5 miles or more from the district high school.

Eligible students will be automatically assigned busing to and from the home address by the Transportation Office.  Parents will be able to see their students’ assignment on Genesis under the busing tab a week before school begins.

Subscription busing will be offered for a limited time. Please check back  during the summer months for further information.

Alternate transportation to or from a babysitter or daycare center is available, provided the following requirements are met:

  • The student must be eligible for transportation from their home address first
  • All assignments are made on a 5 day a week basis. The students cannot receive alternate transportation any less than 5 days a week. Students are not allowed to switch buses for play dates, etc.

Alternate address applications are available during school registration as well on the Montclair Public Schools website and in the Transportation Office. Please submit applications by the beginning of the school year. Applications received after that will be delayed.

Alternate assignments and subscription busing are voided at the end of each school year and must be resubmitted each year if necessary.
