Transportation

  • Dear Parents/Guardians:

    The District transportation company is Montauk Bus, LLC.  You will note their corporate name on the side of all of the school buses at the start of the year.  Their headquarters are located at 209 Wading River Road, Center Moriches, NY 11934 and their direct phone number is 631-874-5300. 

    The District’s goal is to provide efficient, effective and safe transportation services for our students.  As a general guideline, maximum walking distances to pick-up points have been varied according to grade level, and are as follows:

                            Grades K-2                                                       500 feet

                            Grades 3-6                                                       900 feet

                            Grades 7-12                                                  1,320 feet

    Please note, these maximum distances are a guideline that the district used to develop bus stops.  These limits and the bus stops may be revised based upon safety and efficiency issues as determined by the Assistant Superintendent.


Please Note:

  • Bus routes are subject to change at any time during the school year due to new students enrolling, students being discharged, the number of students assigned to buses and bus route timing.

     


  • Feel free to contact the transportation department either by phone (631) 801-3009, fax (631) 801-3027 or by email: ab@esmonline.org.
