Pupil transportation is an important part of the school program.  Maintaining order on school buses requires the cooperation of pupils, parents, teachers, principals and bus drivers.  Transportation of students is provided by the Bensalem Township School District in accordance with State Regulations and District Policies.  Transportation of students is a privilege, not a right.

The Bensalem Township School District Transportation Department works closely with the schools, students and their parents to ensure a safe, dependable and efficient ride to and from school.  Riding on a school bus is the safest way for your child to travel.  All drivers are trained and certified according to state mandates.  They are also required to pass all state and federal background checks for Criminal Records, Child Abuse and Fingerprinting.

We hope you find the information presented here helpful. Please use one of the following methods to contact us with any questions or concerns regarding your child’s transportation to and from school.
