Bus Transportation

Depending on the town in which you reside, Prout students can access town-provided bus service or private bus service. A late bus is available to students who contract for private bus service.

Public Bus Transportation

The Statewide Student Transportation System is open to receive student transportation requests for the upcoming 2022/2023 school year. To ensure a bus stop for the first day of school, both current and new riders must register by July 31, 2021. 

Open enrollment and new transportation requests are available throughout the entire school year. The July 31st deadline is only enforced if you require service on the first day of school. Request forms submitted on or after August 1, 2022, will receive the closest point of pick up or a depot stop location for a temporary bus stop. For students who receive a temporary stop assignment, a permanent bus stop will be issued after September 17, 2022.

Please contact the Statewide Student Transportation System office at (401) 304-9136 or swplanningrequest@ride.ri.gov if you have any questions.
