Bus routes will be posted on the district website at the end of August before school starts.


What is the deadline for registering for the bus?

You may register for the bus anytime during the year by filling out a PAY-N-RIDE BUS TRANSPORTATION APPLICATION.  Please note that there may be a 48 hour delay in getting a bus assignment while we determine seat availability.  Be assured, however, that every child that is bus eligible will be assigned a bus.


We are moving to a new address, how do I notify you of this change so my child can still ride the bus   

Please complete the TRANSPORTATION CHANGE REQUEST FORM  which can be found on the website. We will make the change on our Mansfield Public School's Student Database. There may be a 48 hour delay so please provide as much notice as possible. Please note that entering the new address on the online bus registration alone does not update our student database.


Who do I contact if I have questions regarding bus transportation?

You can email transportation@mansfieldschools.com or can call 508-261-7503 with any questions you have.


Is there a one way ride offered?

Students may elect to ride the bus only to or from school, however, they will still have to complete the bus application and pay the regular fees.


If I register for Pay-N-Ride, is my child automatically able to ride the late bus?

MHS/QMS students are eligible to take the Late Bus at no additional charge if they are participating in the Pay-N-Ride program and have paid for the bus.  If you do not participate in the Pay-N-Ride program but would like to take the late bus ONLY, please complete the MHS/QMS Late Bus Application found on our website at www.mansfieldschools.com/transportation


Where do I get the bus pass?

Bus passes are issued from the main office at the school your child attends.


Does the bus pass allow my child to ride ANY bus?

No, students are assigned to specific buses based on their address and seat availability.  Students should not get on any bus they are not assigned to.
