Lacey Township School District's Transportation Policy offers subscription busing to and from school to students who attend Lacey Township School District in grades 7 through 12, and who are not eligible for free transportation because the students live within the designated walking zone. If you have any questions please call the Transportation office at (609) 971-2000 extension 1043.

    The application process for 2021-22 will open on July 6. The application is web-based and can be found on our district website www.laceyschools.org  under Departments & Programs, then select Transportation. An application is required for each child. Applications received after the first day of school will be considered late with no guarantee that a seat will be available.

    Students approved for subscription busing will be assigned to existing bus stops on existing routes based on availability. No changes or requests for additional routes or stops will be added. All students participating in the subscription busing program are subject to all rules and regulations regarding bus discipline and safety procedures as specified in district policies and regulations.  Bus pickup and drop off times as well as location will be available through the Parent Portal once it is opened for the school year.
