2019-2020 Daycare Provider Form

This form is used to apply for bus transportation if a student will be going to a daycare provider within your school district and meets the eligibility requirements. The transportation is provided to school, from school or both ways. The students will be assigned to a regular bus stop going to the daycare provider's area. There is no door-to-door assignments.

2019-2020 Private and Parochial Form

This form must be provided to this office annually in order to receive transportation to private and parochial schools. Students must meet the eligibility requirements and residency must be verified for any family new to West Hartford or families that do not have a student in the public schools or have never used transportation at the private/parochial school in the past. If the student was in the public school system the previous year and there is no change of address residency verification is not necessary. These forms are time sensitive for routing on the first day of each school year. Please view the form for the date it is due in this office. We do accept requests year round for transportation.
