2022-23 Subscription Busing

According to state law, the Bernards Township Board of Education must provide transportation to all students who reside at a location remote from school. "Remote from school" is defined by NJAC 6A: 27-1.2 as greater than two miles for grades K-8 and greater than two and one half miles for grades 9-12. Mileage is determined by taking the "shortest route along public roadways or public walkways from the entrance of the student's residence nearest such public roadway or public walkway to the nearest public entrance of the school that the student attends."

If you are over these requirements, you do not need to sign up for the bus. You will automatically receive a bus pass prior to the start of school.

If you do not meet these requirements and wish your child(ren) to be transported to school during the school year, you may sign up for the Subscription Busing Program. Riders will be added to routes sometime within two weeks of payment based on availability. The full cost of the program for the 2022-23 school year is $844.00 per student. You may make your payment here.

Refunds are not available unless the rider cannot be placed on a route. If it is determined your student cannot be placed on a route, the Business Office will contact you.

Newly issued passes will be uploaded to Genesis. These passes will notify riders of their school bus route number, stop location and estimated times of pick-up and drop-off. Under no circumstances are students allowed to ride a bus until the bus pass has been received.
