Yellow Bus Transportation & MTA Metro Card

Grade 6 students residing in College Point ONLY have the option of receiving yellow school busing. Students can take the school bus to and from school from a centralized pickup location near your house. If you need yellow bus transportation, call 718-445-3232 and speak to Ms. Santora in the main office.

To contact the Office of Pupil Transportation (OPT) regarding questions/complains about yellow busing, please contact 718- 392-8855

In addition to yellow bus services, students have access to the NYC MTA public buses. Eligible students receive two Full-Fare MetroCards per year, one in September (for the fall semester), and a second card in February (for the spring semester). *Please note: Students receiving College Point bus service are not eligible for MetroCards. Lost MetroCards cannot be replaced. A signed typed or written letter with your child’s name and grade should be submitted to the main office to request a replacement MetroCard. Please visit NYCDOE for eligibility.
