PLEASE click on here  to complete the Bus Pass Sign-up Form.   

A Bus Pass will be required for the upcoming School Year 2021-2022. Old bus passes from the previous year should be destroyed.  This form must be completed by August 12, 2021 so that you can have your bus pass ready the first week of school. 

This application is required for all students who are eligible for transportation (see guidelines below).  Fill out one form per student.  Bus passes will be issued once this form is processed.   There is no fee charged.  Students will be assigned to the bus stop closest to their home address. Bus assignments are subject to change at any time. 

If your transportation needs change, please contact your school secretary and/or complete a new form with the changes.

Based on DESE and health department guidance, we will continue to enforce the following bus rules.  In an effort to provide safe transportation for all students and staff, please be sure to review the bus rules with your student. 

    BUS RULES:


   * Students should show their bus pass to the bus driver 
   * If a student does not have a bus pass, they should state their name to                the bus driver upon entering the bus.
   * Students are required to stay seated throughout the entire bus ride.
  * Kindergarten students are to sit in the front rows.
  * Students should only ride the bus for which they are assigned.
  * High touch areas will be disinfected between routes and buses will             be fully disinfected daily.
 
                                    
Transportation Eligibility Guidelines

  • All Students in Kindergarten through Grade 12 living more than one mile from their assigned school.
  • Students that live closer to their assigned school than outlined above are considered "walkers" and are not eligible for transportation services.
  • Safety issues are taken into consideration when determining transportation eligibility as well.

Families with students that are eligible for transportation should review the bus routes for their student's school. Copies of bus routes will be available at each of the schools and the Administration building at 155 Apsley Street.

Any questions, please contact your student's school directly. No changes to bus stops will be made during the first few weeks of school.

Additional Information

Excerpt for School Committee Policy - Student Transportation

Each year the Hudson Public School district reviews student enrollment and existing bus routes to ensure efficient and safe transportation for all eligible students.

Safety is a responsibility that is shared between the family and the school. While the law requires the School Department to provide a defined level of transportation, it does not relieve parents/guardians of students from the responsibility of supervision until the student boards the bus in the morning. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to ensure the student safely arrives at, and departs from, the bus stop. The parent/guardian is responsible for escorting the student to and from the bus stop where there are no sidewalks, where sidewalks are only on one side, where the bus stop is on the opposite side of the street, and where there are traffic or other safety concerns.

This policy, being consistent with current state law, may require students to walk up to a mile to a bus stop
