Late Bus Information

Pass Buses (for High School, Middle School)

The Goshen Central School District Transportation Department has revised its Pass Bus procedure for the 2013-14 school year.

Pass Buses are available for middle and high school students who need to stay after school for extra-curricular activities, extra help, etc. In the past, five school buses provided transportation home for these students and would travel, on average, 120 miles each day. The new procedure will reduce the excessive number of miles traveled by the five Pass Buses – approximately 21,600 miles per school year. This will help reduce fuel and maintenance costs.

The new procedure is as follows:

Pass Buses will pick up middle and high school students who have a valid pass at 3:10 p.m. and will transport them to the Scotchtown Avenue Elementary School, where they will be taken home with the elementary students.

The Transportation Department estimates that 130 middle and high school students use the Pass Buses each afternoon. The older students will be divided among the 34 elementary school buses, with 4-5 students riding each bus. The older students will have seating toward the rear of the bus, separate from their younger peers.

The Transportation Department will work closely with the middle school and high school in order to communicate which elementary buses the older students should take once they are transported to Scotchtown Avenue.

If you have any questions, please contact Transportation Director Donna Post at 615-6700.
