Bus transportation is available to Mother Seton from Union, Middlesex and Essex counties. Several towns provide free transportation to Mother Seton students or reimburse the family for the cost of busing which is provided by the school.

TRANSPORTATION (Subject to change)

Bus transportation is provided for each student who requests it. Most busing is provided free of charge for those who live more than 2 1/2 miles from Mother Seton because:

A. The student’s town provides the busing (e.g.) Carteret, Elizabeth, Linden, Union and Woodbridge
B.The student’s town reimburses the parent approximately $884.00 of busing costs. (See A below)

Due to the rising cost of gasoline,  the fee (2016 -2017) for busing at Mother Seton will be at least $3150 per year, payable monthly, semi-annually, or annually. Students whose town provides busing pay no money and are bused to Mother Seton by their own towns. Students who live less than 2 1/2 miles from Mother Seton may request consideration in the cost of busing and pay approx. $1625 per year.

Application for busing must be made for each student who plans to use any bus during the following year, on or before March 15th. Parents pay a nonrefundable deposit in May to ensure busing for their daughter. If you live in a town which provides reimbursement and you live more than 2.5 miles from school, you are entitled to receive approximately $884 reimbursement, whether you send your daughter by bus or transport her yourself. When the school receives your applications, we forward them to the appropriate Boards of Education. The towns which provide reimbursements to parents will do so in February and July of the current school year. If you do not receive these reimbursements, contact your Board of Education.

In the case of Carteret, Elizabeth, Linden, Union and Woodbridge, all information about pick-up times, etc. comes directly from your Board of Education. If you have any questions, contact them. Routes for all other towns are mailed to you by the school in August.
