Bus Transportation

In accordance with Pennsylvania Department of Education guidelines, students who live within a 10-mile radius of the WT campuses may be eligible for transportation from the public school district in which they reside. WT will notify your district to arrange for available transportation. The school districts alone determine the eligibility, routes, mode of transportation, and if applicable, bus stops and pick up/drop off times. Parents/guardians are generally notified by the district in mid- to late-August of transportation details.

Please note:

  • Mt. Lebanon does not provide transportation for its own students, and therefore is not required to provide bus transportation to WT.
  • Wilkinsburg School District does not provide transportation for its own students in grades K- 6, and therefore is not required to provide bus transportation to WT. However, resident students in grades 7 -12 are eligible for a monthly PAT Bus Pass as long as parents provide proof of residency to Wilkinsburg School District.
  • Riverview School District provides transportation for students in grades 7 - 12 only.
  • Some school districts provide only one-way transportation for Kindergarten students.
  • No public school bus transportation is provided for Pre-K students.
  • Important Note for students moving from Middle School to Upper School: Pittsburgh Public Schools provides transportation for students in Kindergarten through grade 8 if they live more than 1.5 miles from WT. Students in grades 9-12 are only eligible for transportation if they live more than 2 miles from WT. Beginning in 2016-17, PPS issues eligible students in grades 9-12 a monthly PAT bus pass for their transportation instead of being assigned to a school bus.

While WT does submit information to each school district office for every WT family, including new families, certain school districts also require various forms of identification from the family directly to confirm the information WT submits. Your school district will contact you if additional information is required.

Below is contact information for the list of school districts that provide some level of bus service to either one or both WT campuses. If you reside in a school district that does not provide bus transportation for your student(s), WT offers a van service, at an additional cost, that spans the greater Pittsburgh area.
