State law requires transportation for students who live beyond a two-mile limit. K-6 students falling within this mandate are transported free of charge. All other students will be charged the fees listed above. For information on applying for a scholarship, please contact Bobbe Aiken at 978-921-6100 ext 21726 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bus applications may be completed at Beverlyschools.org/resources/transportation. Bus routes, complete with bus stop locations, are published on this website.
Due to social distancing requirements and following DESE guidelines, Beverly Public Schools is only able to transport Mandated Students in grades K-6 that live more than 2 miles walking distance from their school. Students must be registered in order to board the bus. The registration deadline is Friday, August 21st.
If you are interested in non-mandated transportation, (less than 2 miles walking distance to school) please register using the Regular Education Application, and if appropriate, submit a scholarship application, however this does not guarantee a seat on the bus. Non-Mandated students' transportation applications will not be processed until after the start of school. Families will be notified by the transportation department via email, if space becomes available. As a result, we will not be accepting any payments for transportation at this time.
Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.
