Frequently Asked Questions
About the Transportation Department
Greenville Central School District transports 1150 students approximately 1800 miles each day. Bus drivers work very hard to ensure the safety of our students each and every day.
Student Bus Registration Process
To address the bus driver shortage and create a more efficient transportation program, families are being asked to complete a mandatory Student Bus Registration Form indicating their transportation needs for next school year. The form will ask families to indicate their transportation needs for the start of the school year. The data will be used to create efficient routing for school buses.
The form must be completed. A packet will be mailed to every household of their intentions for transportation. Email reminders will continue to be received by families until the form has been filled out. The form will ask families to only indicate their general transportation needs. Routes will be developed from this data.

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?
If you have been transporting your child, please let us know if you will continue this practice.
Complete the mandatory Student Bus Registration Form when you receive it.
Your help in creating a more efficient transportation service is greatly appreciated.
While on campus, please follow our traffic plan to help ensure the safety of our students.
The MS/HS circle is not a drop/pick area as this is a no parking area. Please be mindful of buses with their red lights flashing as they are picking or dropping students on campus at any point during the day. Stopping when encountering a school bus with flashing red lights (whether you are on the road or in a school parking lot) and obeying school zone speed limits – are state laws. They were established for the safety of everyone on the roads, especially our children!
The access road between the schools is not a shortcut to 81 or 32. This is a bus access road only and is busy with transportation needs. Parents and students should use appropriate entrances and exits on campus. Thank you for keeping our drivers safe!
Routes are continually monitored for safety and efficiency. At any point during the school year major revisions could be required and you will be notified by the Transportation Office.
Please arrive at /have your child at their designated bus stop 5 min. prior to schedule pick up time in the AM and in the PM to receive K&1st grade students. If no one is present to receive students they will be returned to the Elementary School for parent pick up.
If there is no student present at any designated bus stop, the bus is not required to wait at the stop regardless of the weather condition.
While all requests will be reviewed and investigated, NYS Education Law states that changes may not be based upon the “personal challenges facing individual parents.” Stops cannot be changed for these reasons.
If you plan to request an alternate location for your child, please take notice of the following:
Request forms must be submitted annually by August 1st or as soon as possible if family circumstances change during the school year. No changes will be implemented from August 26 through the second Monday of September.
The request must be renewed every school year and/or whenever there is a change in arrangements. Transportation assignments will be made as quickly as possible (within 48 hours of confirmation of the requested bus stop location.)
See attached downloadable Forms
Forms may be mailed, emailed or faxed to our office.
