FlyerPlease review the following safety information with your child so they will be ready to have a safe trip on their first day riding the bus.


  • Eligible Bus Students. Due to limited space on the bus, students are only allowed to ride their assigned bus.
  • Change your child’s bus stop: If your child will need to take the bus to or from another address in Cambridge (example: childcare or afterschool), you MUST submit the Transportation Change Form.
  • Make Sure Your Contact Information is Up-to-Date
  • Find your bus stop
  • Track the bus
  • Safe Routes to Schools

Arrive to bus stop 10 minutes before your scheduled time

Masks are Required at ALL TIMES

For Preschool - Grade 2
Someone must meet students in Grade 2 or younger at the bus stop. If the child does not recognize any adult or older sibling who is there to pick them up, they will stay on the bus until they can be dropped off at the Safety and Security Office at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School (459 Broadway, Cambridge). Someone will contact you, and you can also call the Safety/Security office at 617.349.6772.

A yellow bus tag must be worn on the bus. Teachers will provide students with a yellow bus tag on their first day of school, listing their phone number and afternoon bus stop.
