school buses

We currently have 31 buses bringing our Widener students to and from school. Our district’s  goal is to provide safe, effective and efficient transportation to and from school for eligible Philadelphia students, and provide exceptional customer service to parents and school administrators. We utilize the most up-to-date technological services such as Global Positioning System (GPS)

A few things to remember:

For late or no show buses, you can call the garages at the following numbers:

Broad Street Garage – (215) 227-4430

Passyunk Garage – (215) 400-9820

Shallcross Garage – (215)281-2617

Parent Transportation Hot Line (215) 400-4350

You can also reach our Transportation Coordinator, Kathy Leonard, at  (215) 400-3710  Extension 6 with any transportation changes or concerns. Route changes due to address changes take 3-10 days.

If you are dropping your child off in the morning, you MUST come into the office and notify our secretarial staff to ensure your child’s safety getting to class as well as confirm if they will be taking the bus home in the afternoon.
If you need to pick your child up early, please call our main number,
(215) 400-3710 and we can have your child ready for you when you arrive.

All early dismissals must be by 2:30 PM for safety reasons.
