Transportation News

  • Bus Passes Are Now Available to Print or Download to Your Smartphone.

    For the 2021-22 school year, please review your student's bus route. Stops and schedules have been updated to reflect current ridership. Please review the stops prior to the first day of school. You can find the stops and schedules on this page: Bus Stops and Routes.


  • The NPS transportation system is complex as there are local, state, and federal regulations with which we must comply.
    The Newton Public Schools transportation department is committed to ensuring students are transported safely to and from school. Students in the Newton Public Schools typically arrive at school in one of three ways – walk, bike, or bus. In addition, some families choose to drive students to school. 

Key Information

  • ALL students who ride the bus must have a bus pass. The bus pass allows NPS to track bus ridership to ensure adequate space at each stop and on each bus.

    Before you begin the bus application process, it is helpful to determine the distance from your residence to your assigned school. Please visit the City of Newton site to Find Your Distance to determine buses:

    A special note for our elementary students: Students in Kindergarten and 1st grade must be met at the bus stop by a responsible adult following these procedures.
