Metrocards (Grades 6,7,8)

Full-fare student MetroCards are provided at no cost to eligible students and are good on MTA subways and non-express buses.

Student MetroCards are different from regular MetroCards. A student MetroCard has three trips and three transfers.

(Subway + bus = one trip and one transfer) 

Bussing (Grade 6 ONLY)

  • The student is in grades K-6
  • The student lives in the same district as the school (if attending a public school) 
  • A bus stop within the student’s grade/distance eligibility exists or can be added to accommodate the student.
  • Students attending after school DO NOT receive a bus. You are responsible to get your child home from after school. 

 

Get Your Child's Bus Information

  • Parents: Sign up for your NYC Schools Account (NYCSA) to view information on your child’s transportation services and busing information.

Note: Students using this type of transportation are assigned to a safe predetermined bus stop at an intersection. Students use the same stop both in the morning and the afternoon.

Transportation questions or concerns can be emailed to Ms. Alexa acalisto@schools.nyc.gov
