Please read these frequently asked questions about Marlborough Public Schools bus routes and how to request a bus stop change.
Students should use the bus stop that is the closest walking distance from their homes. We strongly recommend that students arrive at their stops 10 minutes before the indicated pick-up time. Bus routes and pick-up/drop-off times are approximate based on enrollment, which can fluctuate, and buses can run a bit early or late on any given day.
Additionally, parents are cautioned that buses may run late the first few days of school as drivers and families acclimate themselves to new schedules, new routes and, in some cases, new schools.
Any route adjustment requests should be sent to MPS Transportation Contact Dan Riley at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call him at (508) 460-3500, ext. 7510. Route/stop changes will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and changes to routes will be made in late September and posted here.
Riding the school bus:
Students are only allowed to ride their own school bus. Children who ride the bus are not allowed to ride another bus to visit a friend, attend an event, etc. Parents will have to make other arrangements for play dates, activities, etc.
Note: Effective Aug. 30, two "late" buses will service the high school to accommodate after-school activities. They are available Monday-Thursday and pick up students in the front of the school at 4:00 p.m. One services the east side of town, the other the west side of town. Drivers will assist students to identify their drop-off locations.
