** Transportation Information **

Transportation is the responsibility of your local school district.  Upon enrollment, your student’s information is sent automatically to your local school district’s transportation office, which coordinates and oversees all bus routes.  

  • Residents of Franklin Township, North Brunswick, or South Brunswick :  Your local school district provides a school bus to and from TEECS.  You will receive your bus pass directly from their transportation department.  Transportation is the responsibility of the parent/guardian until the bus pass is received.
  • Residents of Other Districts:  Your local school district does not provide a bus and transportation to and from TEECS is the responsibility of the parent.  Some districts will reimburse you for transportation costs at a set rate (aide in lieu) depending on your distance from the school.
