Transportation Services Information
Eligible Bus Transportation
- As required by current state law, Stoughton Public Schools provides bus transportation for students in grades K-6 that live more than two miles from the school that they attend. Information on this bus service is available at the school office. The Student Transportion Policy
contains further details regarding bus transportation of students.
Pay and Ride Bus Transportation
- Stoughton Public Schools provides "pay and ride" bus transportation for students who are not otherwise eligible for bus transportation. The fee for this service is $360.00 per student. This service is subject to availability. To apply for this service, fill out the Pay and Ride Application
and return it to the school office with full payment. Payment may be made by bank check, money order, or credit card--personal checks are NOT accepted
Payment by credit card (MasterCard, Visa, Discover) can be made using the district's on-line payment system at http://www.mealpayplus.com
. PLEASE NOTE THAT MEALPAY CHARGES A FEE OF 4.29% FOR EACH TRANSACTION
. To use a credit card, go to: www.mealpayplus.com
and register using the Local Assigned Student Identification Number (LASID) of your child(ren). When paying by credit card you MUST
also fill out a Pay & Ride application and submit it to your child’s school. For grades 6 through 12, the LASID number is on your child’s report card, for elementary students the LASID number can be obtained from your child’s school office. Additional applications are available at the administrative office of the school your child attends and should be completed and returned to the office of the school your
child will be attending in September.
The School Department cannot order additional buses for the “Pay and Ride” students until we have the funds in hand and know the number of students who will be participating. Once payment is accepted and students are placed on a bus, no refunds will be given.
Pay and Ride Fee Waive
r - The Stoughton School Committee will waive the Pay and Ride fee for those students who are approved for free or reduced price meals. However, the free and reduced approval process occurs after the date when the Pay and Ride applications are due. Therefore, you must forward the necessary proof of eligibility with your Pay and Ride application. See the information sheet
for further information and directions for applying for this waiver.
Snow Emergency Bus Stops
- The town has designated a series of bus stops for use during snow emergencies when the normal bus stops are not available. The stops are listed in the School Cancellation/Delayed Opening Policy
