Public School Bus Update. If your children are enrolled in the transportation program with the NY Public School system, you may have been informed of the following, per the Office of Pupil Transportation:
Effective December 31, 2013, the Atlantic Bus Company and affiliated companies (Amboy, Staten Island Bus and Atlantic Queens Bus) are no longer providing school bus service for the NYC Department of Education. All bus routes operated by Atlantic Bus Company in the past will now be operated by other bus companies. Normal bus service for General Education and Special Education students will start after Winter Recess on January 2, 2014.
Visit the School and Student Transportation Search page on the OPT website to find contact information on the bus company that will now provide service for your child’s route, and to confirm the route number that your child is assigned.
For FiDi Families that were on the Atlantic Bus Company route, please call 718-346-9600 for confirmation that the bus transit will resume on Thursday, January 2nd. Bus routes, pick up times and bus ID numbers will apparently stay the same. But, it is strongly advised that parents contact the office directly.
For additional information, please contact 311 or 718-392-8855 or http://schools.nyc.gov/Offices/Transportation/default.htm (look for Operations Update).
