Student Transportation Information
Transportation is an important topic for many families when considering schools and Bay View understands the importance of finding transportation options that make sense for you and your family. We offer several different busing options, ample on campus parking and a carpool tool that allows you to contact other enrolled students to navigate transportation options.
There are three forms of busing available for Bay View students:
1. Free Bus Transportation (Statewide Bussing)
The following cities/towns are required to provide bus transportation for their residents to and from Bay View, for no cost: Barrington, Bristol, Central Falls, Cranston, *East Providence, Johnston, **Lincoln, North Providence, Pawtucket, Smithfield & Warren.
Parents may register for busing service after June 1 by visiting the statewide website at: www.ride.ri.gov/StudentsFamilies/AdditionalResources/StudentTransportation.aspx or by calling the statewide office at 401-222-5024.
*East Providence residents need to call the East Providence School Department to complete a separate request form and provide proof of residency.
**Lincoln residents need to contact the Lincoln School Department to make arrangements.

Looking to Carpool?
To help coordinate transportation to and from school, Bay View has created a form as a safe place to share contact information between families who are interested in arranging a carpool. Once you have submitted the form, someone from Bay View will connect any matching parties via email, so you can reach out to one another to discuss carpool options.
