TRANSPORTATION

Transportation for students is provided in accordance with the law and West York Area School District Board Policy. Each student for whom transportation is provided shall be assigned to a bus stop and route. Students are not permitted to transfer to another stop and/or route. Parent(s)/Guardian(s) may request in writing that a student be reassigned to a different stop and/or route. District administration will determine if the request will be granted.

Questions regarding transportation during regular school hours should be directed to the Transportation Coordinator for WYASD at (717) 792-4046.

Parents with a transportation emergency between the hours of 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. may contact Reliance Student Transportation at (717) 714-2140.

MESSAGE FROM THE WEST YORK AREA SCHOOL DISTRICT TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT:

Starting at the beginning of the 2018/19 school year, WYASD will have building-specific buses that will transport all elementary students. Buses will be easily identified with the name of the school on each bus. Multi-building households (siblings, etc.) will be considered in the planning of routes. This is a great opportunity to improve bus experiences for Every Student Every Day.

Questions, contact the WYASD Transportation Department at transportation@wyasd.k12.pa.us or 717-792-4046.

KINDERGARTEN BUS STOP RELEASE PROCEDURES CHANGE:

As an ongoing measure to keep our students safe, starting Oct. 11, 2018, parents/caregivers of Wallace kindergarten students MUST come to the bus doors to claim their child at the bus stop.   If the driver and student cannot identify the adult picking up, the child will remain on the bus and be returned to Wallace Elementary for pick up.

To ensure that our district accomplishes its objective of providing safe and efficient transportation of students to and from school, we have established the following rules for bus passengers:
