Transport

bus

Safety of our students is our prime concern. Thus, our transport facility is fully equipped to provide the safest & the most convenient transport solution. It is compulsory for all the students to avail the school transport. The routes of the school buses are drawn up based on convenience and demand while ensuring that no route is overly long. Parents should consult the School’s transport in-charge for necessary details. The goal of DPS PALI ROAD is to provide the students of this district with a safe and secure transportation program. This goal can only be achieved through the combined efforts of school, Bus Company, students, and parents. Involvement from all parties is critical to the success of the program. The privilege of receiving transportation services is dependent upon meeting behavioral expectations. Because privileges can be revoked, student knowledge of expectations is essential. In order to keep students and parents better informed, we have created a transportation handbook which describes:

  1. General eligibility requirements;
  2. Behavioral expectations;
  3. Consequences for not meeting behavior expectations.

We look forward in providing you a continued safe and positive transportation program.
