Transportation

"All roads lead to AHA"
2016 - 2017 School Year

In order to maintain the routing schedule, students must be at their bus stop ten minutes before the scheduled arrival time of the bus. Bus drivers will not be able to wait for students who leave their homes to walk to the bus stop when they see the bus coming down the road toward the bus stop.
Students should always be observant enough to know what the name of their Bus Company is, the number of the Bus, who their regular Bus Driver is, and the faces and/or names of the Students that they ride with on a daily basis.


If a student has discontinued taking their scheduled bus for any reason, parents should notify the bus company and the AHA Transportation Coordinator at 201-768-7822 ext. 200.

Unauthorized students are not permitted on any bus at anytime.

BUS INFORMATION - NEW JERSEY

District Bus: The District or Towns contract directly (Bid on routes) with bus companies to transport students.

Partial Reimbursement or Free Bus: The towns listed will either provide free busing or they will reimburse the parents the amount of money specified by the state for busing a student attending the Academy of the Holy Angels. The Transportation B6T form is required to be filed every year in February. We distribute the forms to all current students in January and must have them returned to us before the February filing date. * Freshman bus forms are completed by us as part of their registration. 

Bus Schedule: Once the bus companies have the completed B6T forms they will create the bus schedules. The stops will be centrally located according to the addresses on the B6T forms. There is no door-to-door service. You will receive the schedule in August. 

Exempt Towns: DO NOT Reimburse or Bus: The busing and payment for busing is contracted directly between the parents and the bus company that will service the town that the student resides.

*Depending on mileage

In New Jersey, a B6T Transportation Form is given to each student and the parent/guardian must fill this form out and sign it each year. The B6T form is forwarded to the student's District for processing and qualification. If the student does not require bus transportation this form is still required to be filed by the State of New Jersey. (In a District where reimbursement is allotted the parent will be entitled to receive reimbursement even if transporting by car.)

Please note that the towns busing may be subject to change from year to year. Please contact the town or the school district for the latest transportation information.

Parents of incoming Freshman for 2015-2016 school year may contact the Transportation Coordinator at AHA at (201) 768-7822 Ext. 213 for information on what bus carrier services their town/district.
