Bus Routes/Transportation


Who is eligible for bus transportation to and from school?

Hamden Public Schools follows the guidelines of the Connecticut State Department of Education which requires transportation be provided to any school age resident attending a Hamden public, private or parochial school who resides an unreasonable distance from school. Transportation is provided at the following levels: 

  • Elementary school students (including Kindergarten) – who live more than 1 mile from school

  • Middle school students – who live more than 1.5 miles from school

  • High school students – who live more than 2 miles from school

*Stop times are approximate, therefore, students should be at the stop 10 minutes before the posted times to avoid missing the bus.  Bus stops locations and times are subject to change due to changing enrollment, weather and traffic conditions.
