Transportation Services

Day Students

If your child is enrolled at CSB as a day student, you will have transportation provided by your home school district. Upon receiving confirmation that your child will start at CSB, it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to contact your home district to set up daily transport to and from CSB. Please note that it sometimes takes up to 2 weeks for the district to coordinate travel so be sure to contact them as soon as possible. The CSB Transportation office will not contact the district to set up transportation but will provide the district with a school calendar and directions if needed. Any changes to your child's transportation schedule needs to be directed as well as reported to the district hired transportation company.

Charter Students

If your child is a residential student at CSB, travel is planned and coordinated by our school through the transportation office. Upon acceptance to CSB, you child will be assigned to a charter bus stop that is located closed to your residence. CSB shares charter buses with the California School for the Deaf and provides various routes throughout the state of California. (If charter buses are not routed to your area, your child will be flown to the closest airport, see flyer students below).

Parents are provided with a schedule that indicated the locations and times of your assigned charter bus. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to ensure that they arrive at the designated bus stop prior to the buses arrival on Fridays to retrieve their child and to arrive early to meet the bus upon departure back to CSB on Sundays. Parents must arrive no later than 15 minutes to the bus arriving at the stop.

Flyer Students

If your child is a residential student at CSB and lives in an area of California that we do not charter buses to, your child will be a flyer. We utilize all three major bay area airports (SFO, Oakland and San Jose) to fly our students to their closest home airport on travel days. CSB purchases tickets in advance and provides staff escorts to transport our students to our local airports and in many cases, escorts also fly with the students to their home airport. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to pick up their child at the gate each week on Fridays and to bring them up to the gate on Sundays. Please see our CSB Flyer Policy for more detail on parent/guardian responsibilities and CSB policy.
