Welcome to the PCS Transportation Page
Welcome to the Poland Central School Transportation Department section of the website. We have provided many resources that you will find on the menu to the left. Please take a moment to look around because there is valuable information for both parents and students available on the site.
Poland provides transportation for all students in grades K-12 who live within the Poland Central School District. Please keep in mind that we can not travel on private or seasonal roads.
Our fleet of school buses includes 13 full-sized school buses and seven small buses. We travel more than 300,000 miles per year between regular home-to-school routes, out-of-district routes, sports trips and field trips. The Poland Central School District is 480 square miles in size, making it the second largest district in size in New York state.
Student safety is important for all of us. Our drivers and monitors attend safety training twice per year and provide school bus safety drills for students three times throughout the school year. It is also important that parents help teach and reinforce bus rules, safe riding practices and crossing procedures to help keep safety in the minds of our students.
We urge everyone in the community to join with us to ensure that we have an injury-free year for students. Please watch carefully for student pedestrians and stop when you see the flashing red lights on the buses.
Please make sure that your house number is easily visible on both sides of your mailbox and on the front of your house. These numbers are very important for our drivers to identify addresses, especially when dropping off pre-k students. We appreciate your help!
