Student Busing Information

  • Versatrans e-Link

    The Grand Island Central School District Transportation Department is utilizing a digital solution to distribute student busing information. We will be maintaining Versatrans e-Link® for parents/guardians to gain access to their child's busing information. Versatrans e-Link is an online student transportation parent portal, which enables parents to access their student's transportation information and bus schedules at any time.

    Preliminary student bus stop information is currently active on the e-Link. This information is subject to change. Busing information is updated regularly and can be accessed at any time.

    PLEASE NOTE: Bus stop times are estimated and are subject to change. Please have your child at the bus stop five minutes prior to pick-up times. Elementary students' parents/guardians should be at the bus stop with their children. Routing times are subject to change up to two weeks into the school year. Please refer to the My Stop App to access live bus GPS data.

    BUSING REQUIREMENTS: High School and Middle School students may walk up to five-tenths (.5) of a mile to a bus stop. Students in grades 2-5 may walk up to three-tenths (.3) of a mile to a bus stop; kindergarten, and first-grade students may walk up to two-tenths (.2) of a mile to a bus stop. Parents/guardians of K-1 students are required to meet their children at the bus stop to help ensure their child’s safety.

    Any further questions, please call Transportation at 716-773-8890.
