Bus registration for the 2022-2023 school year opens on Monday, April 4 at 8am. The Transportation Forms page will become available at that time.

The Needham Public Schools Transportation Program provides transportation services to and from school, as well as fee-based extracurricular services to student groups and Town-wide programs.  

Yellow bus service is provided free of charge to Needham resident students in Grades K-6 who reside more than two (2.0) miles from school, and to Boston resident students who participate in the METCO Program.  Children in Grades K-6 who live two or fewer miles from school and all children in Grades 7-12  may pay a fee to ride the school bus, annually.  Financial assistance is available for families who qualify under income guidelines, and children eligible for free/reduced lunch do not pay a fee.

Transportation also is provided to special education students PreK-12, who have transportation assigned as a related service in their Individualized Education Plan, as well as to homeless, group home and other students.  For more information on how to qualify for special services transportation click the link for Special Education Transportation.
