Welcome to the MSAD 6 Transportation Department!

Bus routes are now posted.  You can view the routes by clicking on a school listed on the right or try out a new option to retrieve the most up-to-date information through Infofinder i.  Infofinder i is currently in the beta testing phase.  It is a web-based service that allows you to access the bus route information that we have stored in our routing database, Routefinder Pro.  Please know that if you use Infofinder i, there are currently zip code issues with Limington addresses.  We are aware of this problem and the software company, Transfinder, is working to resolve it.  If you enter an address in Limington with the zip code 04049, you may need to choose the Cornish zip code 04020, the Steep Falls zip code 04085 or the Limerick zip code 04048.    

If your child was being picked up and/or dropped off at a location other than his/her home address last school year and you filled out a Transportation Change Form, your child's schedule will remain the same as it was last school year; however, the bus number and pick-up/drop-off times may have changed.  If you did not fill out a change form last school year and you would like your child to be picked up and/or dropped off at a location other than his/her home address listed in Infinite Campus, you must submit the Transportation Change Form.  Select the tab to the right to complete the form.

Please refer to MSAD 6 Policy EEA regarding consistent schedules and the number of bus stops a student may have.  Students may have two scenarios that must be consistent.  Examples:  M-F pick-up @ home, M-F drop-off @ daycare/alternate site; OR Monday, Wednesday, Friday pick-up/drop-off @ home, Tuesday and Thursday pick-up/drop-off at daycare/alternate site.  Bus passes will not be issued to alter the permanent schedule.       

The first day of school for students in grades pre-k through 6th and 9th grade is Wednesday, August 31, 2016.  Pre-k and kindergarten students will be picked up with a parent after the elementary route.  Pre-k and kindergarten parents will be receiving a letter in the mail regarding the pick-up time and location.  All students will attend school on Thursday, September 1st.  There is no school on Friday, September 2nd or Monday, September 5th.

We look forward to serving you this school year!
