Many surrounding communities operate buses to and from Bishop Eustace Prep in accordance with the New Jersey State Transportation laws for non-public school students. Parents should contact their local Board of Education to receive information about transportation from the various school districts.
The district or township you live in
has 3 options:
- Option 1: Provide a bus with a pick-up point within 2.5 miles of your residence. Students eligible for busing will receive a bus pass from this individual district in August. (2.5 miles is the maximum distance a student in New Jersey can walk to a stop, but it is usually 1 mile or less.)
- Option 2: Provide monetary aid-in-lieu of transportation. Students who are not eligible for busing, but eligible for aid-in-lieu, will be paid in two installments. These payments are generated and distributed by the district or township.
- Option 3: No bus, no aid-in-lieu of transportation. The school districts that are "walking" districts may not provide a bus or aid-in-lieu. In this case, families must make their own transportation arrangements or may reside in an area that is covered by a Bishop Eustace private route. In turn, many parents arrange carpools to transport their children to and from Bishop Eustace Prep. Limited public transportation is also available.
Important Note Regarding Weather: In case of inclement weather, students are to follow their sending district's schedule. For example, if Bishop Eustace has a delayed opening but a student's sending school district does not, that student is to report to their bus stop at the regular time during a delay.
