Private / Parochial School Transportation Information

  • Private / Parochial School Transportation Request for the 2024-2025 School Year


    If your child(ren) will be attending a private or parochial school during the 2024-2025 school year, you are required to submit a transportation application on or before April 1, 2024.


    It’s possible transportation will not be provided for your child for one of the following reasons: (i) the distance from your home to the school is greater than 15 miles; (ii) the decision to enroll in a private or parochial school is made after April 1; (iii) the application is not submitted by April 1. If transportation is not provided for any of these reasons, the cost and responsibility for arranging transportation will rest with the parent/guardian. 


    Transportation is not provided on the following days: Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day, and the day after, Christmas Day, New Year's Day, MLK Jr Day, President's Day, Memorial Day, Juneteenth, and any day declared as a public holiday by the POTUS or the Governor. Transportation is not provided for orientation days prior to the opening of the Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District. Transportation is not provided for private or parochial schools when the POB school district is closed due to inclement weather. When the POB school district operates on a delayed schedule due to inclement weather, the private and parochial buses will also operate under that delayed schedule.


    If your child is new to the Plainview-Old Bethpage school district, (s)he must be registered before transportation can be applied for.  Click here to register your child. To reiterate, registering is only if your child is new to the district (e.g. an incoming kindergartner, if you will be moving here, or if you have recently moved here). 


    The Plainview-Old Bethpage School District collects transportation applications electronically. We do not accept paper applications. The website will allow you to enter separate applications for each child. Applications do not carry over from school year to school year, new applications need to be submitted each year.


    Listed below are the instructions on how to apply for transportation to a private or parochial school for the 2024-2025 school year:

    1. If you do not have an account with Arbiter Sports (formerly known as FamilyID), you’ll need to create one at this link.
      1. Note: If you previously created a Family ID account, you do not need to create an additional account.
      2. Note: Create the account with YOUR information (parent / guardian) not your child’s information.
    2. THEN, after you have an activated account, please go directly to the Transportation Application page at this link.
    3. Read the relevant information and then click the Register Now button.
    4. Once on the registration form, the website will ask for “participant” information. This is your child, not you. All fields with a red * are required to have an answer.
    5. Click the Continue button when your form is complete.
