USE THIS LINK TO REGISTER FOR THE BUS

Bus Passes K-8 are available for pickup at your child's school

Bus routes are posted at the link to the left.  Please see these Health and Safety Guidelines for more information prior to putting your child on a bus.

  • NEW THIS YEAR - Students in grades K-12 who need to ride the bus to/from any of the Franklin Public Schools or the Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter School MUST be registered, even if they receive free transportation due to distance or a Free/Reduced meal eligibility waiver.  Students who ride a van to a specialized program do NOT need to register.  Regional students not living in Franklin who are attending the Charter School should reach out directly to the Charter School.  Students in grades K-6 in excess of 2.0 miles will not be charged a fee.  If you are unsure of any fee due, please visit Unipay’s website linked here

  •  If you have signed up and have now decided not to ride, please inform us by email to schoolbus@franklinps.net.

  • Parents/guardians can still register their student(s) via this google form, and we will do our best to accommodate families’ needs. You will need your student’s ID number to register.  Likely, your student may know it, however, for newly registered students, you may reach out via email to your school secretary or schoolbus@franklinps.net

  • The School Committee set the rate this year at the reduced fee of $130.00 per student with a three student cap. 

  • Parents/Guardians who are required to pay a bus fee for their student(s) must use the online UniBank payment method. There will be no walk-ins or paper registrations accepted - No cash, checks or money orders will be accepted.  If you are using your checking account information (routing number and account number), there is a $0.25 processing fee. If you are using a debit or credit card, there will be a processing fee according to the rates provided on the UniPay website. The current fees posted by UniBank start at $10.00 for those paying by credit card. The larger fee for credit and debit cards is because those transactions flow through the credit card companies (Mastercard, Discover, and American Express). 

  • Bus passes are available for pick up at your student’s school.

 

  • Bus routes are subject to change at any time as new students enroll.

 

Please direct any questions about bus registration to schoolbus@franklinps.net, or call (508) 553-4815.  Voicemails are being routed to email and your call will be returned as soon as possible. 

Thank you.
