Transportation for program students is provided by the Rochester City School District.
The Rochester City School District (RCSD) Transportation Department contributes to student achievement by ensuring that our students have a safe and reliable means of getting to and from school and school related activities on a daily basis.
They employ highly trained professional and dedicated bus drivers, maintenance mechanics, and office staff. First Student and Regional Transit Service (RTS) are subcontracted by RCSD to provide transportation for the Urban-Suburban Program under the Private, Parochial & Charter School designation.
The Rochester City School District transportation policy is set by RCSD Board of Education. The New York State Education Department requires school districts to provide transportation to elementary and secondary children who live more than one and one-half (1.5) miles from the school they attend. Private, Parochial & Charter School transportation may not exceed fifteen (15) miles as allowed by the New York State Education Department.
Rochester City School District Transportation Department and the Urban-Suburban Program, in cooperation with our service providers, strive to ensure that all students have a safe and pleasant trip to and from school every day.
Please remember that transportation is a privilege, not a right. Discuss bus safety with your child regularly in order to ensure that they have a safe and enjoyable trip!
