The Troy City School District offers bus transportation to students who are residents of the District and those who attend public, private, parochial and charter schools (except for those within the “walk-zone”). Late buses are provided for middle and high school students who stay after school for activities.

The major objectives of the Transportation Department include the following:

  1. To provide safe and efficient transportation equitably to all eligible students.
  2. To adapt busing to the needs of the instructional program whenever practical.
  3. To explore and implement cost-effective procedures and practices whenever practical.

Closings and Delays

When the School District is closed, delayed, or closing early due to inclement weather and/or other events that warrant a schedule change, information is posted to the district website and also on the local media sites listed below. It is best to rely on more than one source of information when it comes to weather-related announcements. Please see below for ways to get this information:

Text Alerts

Parent/Guardians can sign up for text alerts to receive a text message the minute a decision is made about weather-related closings and delays. Visit for details.

In the event of a weather-related closing or delay, look for the yellow notification bar at the top of this and any page on our website.

Social Media

We will post weather-related closings and delays to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Local Media


*Transportation is not provided to Private, Parochial & Charter Schools when the Troy City School District is closed. Parents/Guardians should check with their child’s/children’s respective schools for transportation at these times.

Durham Bus Tracker App

Troy CSD is pleased to offer our students and families the free Durham Bus Tracker app. This app allows families to view the location of their child’s bus and provides near real-time information about the bus routes, including the scheduled arrival time of each stop, using GPS technology currently installed on all Durham buses.

Download the free app on the Apple App Store or Google Play Store, or visit on your mobile device or computer. After setting a secure username and password, you will need to enter your child’s last name and student ID number (without the leading zeros – this is also your child’s lunch ID number) as well as location (Troy CSD) and state (New York). Please contact your school’s main office if you do not know your child’s student ID number. 

If you previously created an account, you can use the same login information. Any student you associated with your account should still be listed.

Durham School Services has provided the following documentation for families:

The deadline for requests for transportation from new residents of the district is 30 days after establishing residence in the district. The parent/guardian is responsible for providing Central Registration with proof of residency.

Medical Conditions

A student’s medical condition must be reported to both the School Nurse and the Coordinator of Transportation. Any changes to the medical condition must also be reported. All medical records are kept confidential, information is only shared on a ‘need to know’ basis for Transportation purposes.

Requests for Special Transportation due to an injury or other temporary medical condition must be accompanied by detailed instructions from the student’s physician and School Nurse. These instructions should include the exact needs and expected duration of the special Transportation request. All special Transportation requests are subject to approval by the Transportation Department.

Please contact your School Nurse to initiate this process.
