Transportation Information for Students
Who Are New or Returning to the Syracuse City School District

Thank you for registering your child with the Syracuse City School District.  Students who live 1.5 miles or more from the school are eligible to receive transportation. 

Please Note: that if you registered your child for school and/or completed your registration within the last few weeks you will not be in the system to receive transportation during the first week of school. 

Once we contact you with your school assignment, you can contact the Transportation Department (435-4260) or the school your child is assigned to see if he/she is eligible for transportation.  At that time, you can also ask if there is an existing bus stop in your area.  If there is an existing bus stop in your area, the Transportation Department or school can provide a 5-day temporary pass until your child is assigned a stop/added to the bus route.
