Registration to ride the bus for the 2020-2021 school year will open online on May 15, 2020. Information on policy, procedures and cost to ride will be shared via email, website updates and in the Superintendent's Blog in April.
Registration to ride the bus closed on June 14th. Massachusetts General Law Chapter 71, Section 68 requires free public transportation for students only if they are in grades K-6 and only if they live more than two miles from the school they are entitled to attend. The Milton Public Schools adheres to this policy and provides (free) busing for the students covered above and offers the remaining seats to students on a first-come, first- served basis for a fee of $275 per student with a family cap of $550. Please email MPS transportation director Rachel Schewe at email@example.com with questions regarding late registrations.

Transportation Alert Info for Families
The Transportation Department is utilizing REMIND text updates for all SIGNIFICANT bus delays and transportation issues. This is the ONLY way that families will be notified. This year families can sign up for route specific alerts. More than one member per family can sign up for the same route as can students at Pierce and MHS.
The process is very simple. Text the unique code corresponding to your student's bus (provided below) to 81010 to sign up for route specific alerts. Families can sign up for alerts from more than one bus route. As winter weather approaches we anticipate transportation challenges and will keep families informed via text. The REMIND system is unable to receive texts back from families so please continue to utilize firstname.lastname@example.org for transportation questions.
