Pupil Transportation
School Code and Regulations
 
 
Various sections of the Pennsylvania Public School Code of 1949 and the Regulations of the State Board of Education address provision of and reimbursement for pupil transportation.  Of particular interest are: School Code Section 1361, which addresses the provision of transportation services for public and nonpublic school pupils; Section 1362, which sets the maximum walking distance to a school bus stop; Section 2541, which provides for state payment toward pupil transportation costs; and Section 2509.3, which provides for supplementary payment for nonpublic school pupil transportation.

Additionally, State Board Regulations Section 23.4 outlines the responsibilities of the school district board of directors and Section 23.5 states who is eligible for transportation.
