School Board Approves Revisions to District Pay-to-Ride Services for 2019-20  


The Carlisle School Board approved the revisions for the Pay-To-Ride (PTR) Bus Services for the 2019-20 school year at the May 13th School Board meeting. The district went through several phases of revisions based feedback from patrons and school board reviews.   Revisions were necessary due the district not being able to sustain current PTR services due to regional shortages in bus drivers and cost of programming.


Program Details:

  1. Available to Kindergarten-12th grade students who do not qualify for state-funded transportation who live in the Carlisle city limits.  
  2. Students must be picked up and dropped off at their assigned school bus stop.  Pick-up and drop-off must be at the same location.  Bus stop will be determined by Carlisle Community School District.
  3. No guest students will be allowed to ride along with Pay-to-Ride students.
  4. All students riding the bus are subject to the rules of conduct and safety and may be removed temporarily or permanently due to misbehavior.
