Why did my child receive busing in prior years and not this year?

There may be several reasons or conditions that may answer this question as   follows:                                          
  • Decreased school enrollment making the bus at a low capacity which disallows a contract renewal due to the nonpublic per pupil cap;
  • No contractor submitted a bid on the route(s);
  • The lowest bid received exceeded the per pupil cap the state of New Jersey places on transportation for nonpublic students. The current cap for the 2015-16 school year is $884 per year or a daily rate of $4.91 (NJSA 18A:39-1)
