School Bus

School Busing Program

Belmont School Committee policy determines the extent to which pupils are transported by bus. The Belmont Public Schools’ policy for providing busing will follow the State guidelines, and busing for other students will be available for a fee.

School Crossing Guards are provided by the Belmont Police Department to assist walkers in crossing some busy streets. In accordance with state law, transportation is provided at no charge for students who live more than 2 miles from school. MapQuest is used to determine mileage. Students residing under 2 miles may purchase a bus pass subject to the availability of space and distance from school. Bus routes are published annually prior to the start of school in the local newspaper and are always available in the main office.

Pupils in special education programs are also transported if an out-of-district placement is required.
