Welcome to the Transportation Department

  • Important Transportation Information for the 2022-23 School Year

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    The Brighton Central School District Transportation Department has mailed out new bus passes and you should be receiving them soon. They will include your child’s bus number, bus stop location, and pick-up and drop-off times. During the first few days of school, please understand that pick-up and drop-off times may vary from bus passes due to picture taking, meeting new bus drivers, road construction or other unforeseen circumstances. It’s important for students to be outside 5 minutes before the bus is scheduled to pick them up.

    Please contact the Transportation Department with any questions or concerns at 242-5200, Ext. 5806.

    We know the importance of timely communication regarding your child’s transportation. When buses are running late, we will be using automated calls, texts, and emails to notify families. Notifications will be made when we expect a delay of more than 10 minutes.

    Thank you,

    Sherie Pickering
    Director of Transportation

    Luis Lopez
    Assistant Director of Transportation

     

    Please contact the Transportation Department with any questions at 585-242-5200 ext. 5806. 

    Bus Rider Rules

    1. Be at the bus stop 5 minutes before pick up time.

    2. Listen to your bus driver and monitor at all times - wait for the bus driver's signal to cross.

    3. Respect the property and personal rights of others while at the bus stop and on the bus.

    4. No skateboards, golf clubs, large musical instruments, skis or creatures (dead or alive) on the bus.

    5. Do NOT Eat Food or Drink on the bus.

    6. Please refer to the Parent Handbook (Parent Information Guide) for the school year for bus transportation rules and guidelines.

    PM Drop Off Information

    For students in grades K through 2, we ask that a parent or authorized adult be visible to the driver at the stop location. 

    For students in grades 3 through 5, we ask that the parents provide a safe option when the child gets off, it's NOT required that an adult be present.  If the child has a key please be sure they have it. 

    REMEMBER: PM drop times may vary based on ridership. 

    Bus Information

    Bus transportation is provided by First Student under contract with the Brighton School District. Transportation is provided for K-2 students living at least 1/8 mile from school, for 3-5 students living at least 1/4 mile from school, and for 6-12 students living at least 3/4 mile from school. Our goal is to provide all Brighton students with safe, pleasant and efficient transportation.

    Bus schedules are mailed to parents during the last two weeks in August. Please allow a week or so for the bus to get on a regular schedule. Beyond that time, notify the transportation department of any problems with the bus schedule at 585-242-5200 Ext 5806.

    SINCE TRAFFIC AND WEATHER CONDITIONS MAY AFFECT ARRIVAL TIME, PLEASE ALLOW A NORMAL FIVE MINUTE VARIANCE FOR THESE FACTORS.

    Please be sure the transportation office has accurate information for day care and/or babysitting arrangements as they affect bus pick-up and drop-off. It is important you keep this information updated with any changes by using the Transportation Form that can be found on-line and at school.

    Requests for a student to ride on an AM bus other than the one assigned  MUST BE MADE IN WRITING and given to the AM Bus driver. In the PM, a child is only allowed to ride another bus with a Bus Dismissal Pass that is filled out and turned into school the day of the change. Bus dismissal passes are available for K-5 children on-line or the school's office.

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
