Welcome to the Transportation Department website!

 

Our department is complete with 36 busses, 7 school vans, 30 CDL bus drivers, 8 van drivers and 18 bus monitors. The Director, Bookkeeper and Dispatcher maintain the department Monday-Friday from 8:00 to 4:00PM and would be glad to assist you in any way regarding school bus transportation.

We provide transportation to the students of Beverly who attend our public schools as well as those who attend parochial schools in Beverly. Students are bussed daily to and from their respective schools. Transportation is provided for students who participate in school field trips, athletic/music programs, or any other school based activity that requires bussing. Our goal is to provide transportation to all students in a safe and timely manner.

 

Regular Bus Transportation


Application is required to register a student to ride a regular bus to and from their school daily. A form should be completed online for each child along with any required bus fee to the Transportation Department. The Beverly Public Schools require all students in grades 7-12 to provide their own transportation or to pay a transportation fee. The fee is $315 per student and capped at $630 per family. One way ridership is allowed at $157.50 per student. A $5 fee is assessed to replace a bus pass. In case of financial hardship, scholarship assistance for those families who are eligible may be provided. 

 

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 raiken@beverlyschools.org.  

 

Bus Routes, complete with bus stop locations, are published on this website.
