Welcome to Pleasant Valley School District Transportation Services
Since 2008, the Pleasant Valley School District has contracted with First Student, Inc. to provide transportation services. Below, please find contact information for both the school district's liaison and First Student's onsite terminal. Please also feel free to access additional transportation information by selecting the links to the left.
Alternate Stop Requests
The deadline to provide the transportation department an alternative bus stop for your student for the 2023-2024 school year is August 4, 2023. No requests for alternative stops will be taken during the first few weeks of school. Parents missing the deadline will be responsible for transportation. Requests for changes can be submitted beginning September 20, 2023. The district will review the change requests in priority order and a determination will be sent to you.
Parents/guardians who share equal custody of a child, or parents needing daycare before or after school, may need an alternative stop location. However, only one alternative stop can be requested. Alternative stops are only setup in cases of custody agreements or daycare. Parents/guardians need to notify the transportation department of alternate addresses if needed. The days for alternative stops must be consistent each week and must be Monday through Friday. Alternating single days will not be accepted. These alternate stops will be deleted at the end of the school year and parents/guardians will need to submit a request for alternative stops before the beginning of the following school year.
Please complete the 2023-2024 Transportation Change Form link which can be found on the left.
Bus Transportation Opt-Out/Opt-In Requests
Some parents/guardians may choose to transport their child to and from school instead of riding the school bus/van. This decision needs to be for both AM and PM transportation and must be every day of the week. Parents/guardians who know that they will not need district transportation this year are asked to complete the “Bus Transportation Opt-Out/Opt-In Request Form” using the link below.
Parents/guardians who have opted out of transportation at the beginning of the school year may decide to opt back in. There is an “opt-in” button in the survey. Please fill out the survey and allow five business days for the change to take place.
Additionally, this form can be completed to request busing during the PSSA and Keystone testing for Pleasant Valley Bear Academy students. To do so, please complete the form and choose “opt-in” and next to the phone number please type “PSSA” or “Keystone”. This allows us to know that busing is only needed during these testing dates.
Please complete the 2023-2024 Opt-Out/Opt-In Transportation Form link which can be found on the left.
