Special Needs Transportation
In order for the Department of Transportation Services to provide special transportation or additional support, the need must be documented in your student’s most recent finalized Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Your student will need to have a completed Individualized Education Plan (IEP) in order to request transportation. Determining this eligibility is an IEP team decision. If no specialized transportation is noted, your child’s transportation eligibility will be determined based on the general eligibility rules outlined in the Eligibility Guidelines.
If you think your child requires additional support on the bus, please talk to your school about having an IEP meeting to discuss options.
If you have concerns regarding events on the bus or to report issues, please contact your school administrators or visit our Customer Feedback page. You may also call the Department of Transportation Services Customer Service at 215-400-4350 and select option 3.
