9/8 Update: STUDENT BUS TRANSPORTATION

For families trying to get through to our transportation hotline at 215-400-4350:

We ask for your patience as we try to manage an extraordinary amount of call volume.

We have 8 people manning the hotline from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. and they are working diligently to answer the lines and respond to messages left as quickly as possible.

If you are unable to get through on the hotline, you can forward your bus transportation inquiries to transoperations@philasd.org. Please provide the details about your concern, including your student’s name, school, transportation request, and your best contact information.

Again, our staff will respond to your inquiries as soon as possible.
