Parent Pay Transportation Support Program
 
 

 

What is the Parent Pay Transportation Support Program?

Our parent pay transportation support program (PPTSP) is a subscription-based service that allows parents to obtain access to school bus student transportation services when transportation services are not currently offered or funded by the school.

It is primarily designed for situations where an area(s) is designated as non-transported by the school district due to walk distance, school of choice (magnet school) or the school currently does not offer school bus transportation. This program allows the parent to contract directly with our company to provide school bus student transportation services. 

 

Wow! This service is something my child needs! How much does it cost?

Fees for PPTSP are based on the requested day the student plans to ride the bus (not school attendance), therefore, parents are responsible for fees whether the student rides or not. (This includes club meetings, bus suspension, sick days and family vacation time). Payments will be drafted monthly - rate will be pro-rated according to start date. NO REFUNDS ARE GIVEN FOR EARLY WITHDRAWAL. Currently we only accept payments for the PPTSP though PayPal or a credit card. Payment is due on the 25th of the month. Students will not be permitted to ride if payment is not processed prior to the 1st day of the next month.

 

Why should I use your service rather than drive my child to school?

Due to the cost of operations to put a school bus route on the road, we require the parents of at least 35 students at the same school to express interest in the PPTSP.
