A bus is currently provided at no charge by the South Orange/Maplewood Board of Education to students in Grades K-8 (not Pre-K) who reside in Maplewood or South Orange.
Under the present laws of the State of New Jersey, certain towns are required to provide bus service or a transportation rebate to students who attend school outside of the district in which they live. Information on towns that offer this rebate is available through the Business Office. If your town is one of those listed, you must apply for the rebate by filling out the B6T form. You may fill it out online, but will need to print and sign it before sending it in.
Far Brook contracts with a private company to provide bus transportation, for a fee, to a limited number of students in other locations. The number of passengers and the bus route are determined annually based upon the number and geographic range of requests. Far Brook is only able to offer service to areas where a sufficient number of students request it.
