This program is for parents/guardians to whom free bussing is not provided. It is also utilized by parents/guardians which live less than 1.5 miles from the school and have a Serious Safety Hazard approval on file with their Regional Office of Education. The reimbursement rates are usually prorated, and are paid out on a per pupil basis.
