TRANSPORTATION OFFICE PHONE NUMBER: 607-533-4608
Transportation for Private and Charter Schools (non public Schools)
Students must be also registered in the Lansing School District before transportation request can be considered.
Students who live and are registered in the district and are eligible for busing and may be bused up to 15 miles.
All private and charter school transportation requests must be received by the Transportation department by April 1.
Forms must be renewed each school year. Please use this Transportation Form.
Bus routes are determined by Roger Dedrick Transportation Supervisor. For route information or if a child fails to return home at the end of the day, please contact Mr. Dedrick at 533-4608; he is able to contact all drivers by radio.
Students should be ready and waiting for bus pickups 5 minutes before they are scheduled to arrive. If your students are not out waiting by the pickup point the drivers may not see them. If the driver has to wait for your student it is not fair to the other students who are waiting for the bus as it runs off schedule.
All children ride to and from their homes on their regular buses unless the school is notified in writing of a change. The office will not consider a call to the bus garage or discussion with the bus driver adequate. If a child goes to a day care provider or a different address, please indicate this. Let us know if it is daily or only on specific days. We request your total cooperation in this matter which legally requires elementary, middle and high school offices to have a request in writing.
A parent/guardian or older sibling needs to be home and visible before we drop off Elementary students. Otherwise students will be transported back to the Elementary School.
