Safely Delivering Our Future To and From School Daily
Welcome to the Cheshire Public Schools Transportation Site!
The Board of Education Transportation Office is the liaison between schools, parents, and the bus company contracted to provide bus service for eligible Cheshire students to their assigned schools. This office oversees the transportation of over 4,500 students on schools buses, mini school buses, and school transportation vehicles within Cheshire and schools and facilities outside of Cheshire.
Our primary objective is to provide safe, efficient, and economical bus transportation for the students of Cheshire Schools. You can help us meet this objective by helping your child understand and adhere to the Bus Rules and Regulations.
Cheshire Public Schools follows the guidelines of the Connecticut State Department of Education which requires transportation be provided to any school age resident attending a Cheshire public or parochial school. Eligibility for busing is determined by the following standards:
Students who are in kindergarten shall not be required to walk farther than one-half (1/2) mile to school or to the bus stop.
Students who are in Grades 1 through 6 shall not be required to walk farther than one (1) mile to school or to the bus stop.
Students who are in Grades 7 through 12 shall not be required to walk farther than one and one-half (1 1/2) miles to school or to the bus stop.
Busing information, including a child's bus number, bus stop location, and pick-up time, can be accessed at any time by logging into PowerSchool.
Please refer to the School Districts by Street section of our website for a comprehensive listing of walking and busing areas for Cheshire Public Schools.
Any parent or guardian who wishes to appeal transportation arrangements or request alternate transportation can refer to the Policy and Forms section of our website.
Lost items on school buses and other school bus issues can be directed to our school bus contractor, Dattco, Inc., at (203) 699-8877.
Any other student transportation issues can be directed to the Cheshire Public Schools' Transportation Office at (203) 272-2472.
