  • Dear PPS Parent/GuardianFamilies of charter, non-public, and parochial students desiring daily transportation must submit an on-line request for service annually to ensure compliance with State regulations governed by Act 372 of the PA School Code. Transportation assignments will not be carried over from school year to school year. A new form for each student must be submitted the summer prior to each school year.


    Transportation will be provided based on the student’s school of enrollment and eligibility based on legal residence as confirmed in PPS’ Student Information records. Each school is responsible for sending enrollment information and/or rosters to PPS verifying enrollment and the legal address.


    Families will complete this on-line transportation form for each student for the 2022-2023 school year. 


    Please note that If your child does not ride for a week or more, the stop could be eliminated, and a new form would need to be submitted. Forms must be received by July 15, 2022 to ensure transportation for the start of the 2022-2023 school year.


    Please visit the following link or scan code on a phone or tablet to access the form- https://forms.office.com/r/sGxzRPUx1s
