Princeton Day School does not provide busing for students. Some local school districts provide transportation, while some may provide reimbursement in lieu of transportation. To apply for busing, or transportation reimbursement please submit a B6T Transportation Application Form. The deadline on the form applies to our current families. Once new families are officially enrolled, forms should be submitted as soon as possible.

The following students are not eligible for New Jersey Transportation services:
  • Students younger than 5 years old
  • K–12 students more than 20 miles from school
  • 9–12 students within 2.3 miles of school
  • PreK–8 students within 2 miles of school
  • Students who do not live in New Jersey

Courtesy busing for students living within two miles of school may be available only if a route already exits.

Dismissal times vary at PDS, but all buses depart PDS at approximately 3:25pm every day.

Please note that in case of a delayed opening or cancellation of school due to weather conditions, parents should contact their local school district to see if/when buses are available. Buses will follow the announcements and decisions for each individual school district, not Princeton Day School.

Upon submitting the B6T Transportation Application Form online, print a copy for your own records. Parents requesting transportation must submit one application per child and must indicate their local Board of Education at the top of the form. Contact your local public school if you are unsure about the name of your Board of Education. If your address changes during the school year, please contact so the information is current and arrangements can be made to transfer your child(ren) to a new bus system.

PLEASE READ the information below from the State of New Jersey regarding the B6T. Please be aware of the deadlines in addition to your rights and responsibilities. [Bracketed information was added by PDS.]
