The Guilderland Central School District runs an average of 90 buses each day—traveling more than 1.4 million miles a year (that’s to California and back every school day) to 75 different schools! Approximately 5,000 public school students, 400 private and parochial students and 120 special needs students ride Guilderland buses daily.

School Closings, Delays and Early Dismissals

School closings, delayed openings and early dismissals resulting from weather conditions or other situations will be posted as a news item on the homepage. Additionally, individuals may access school closing information via School News Notifier and various media outlets. Parents will also be notified of school closing and delays via the One Call Now telephone alert system. Please do not call the bus garage for information about school closings, since this ties up phone lines and can prevent receipt of important calls. Visit our closings and delays page for more info.

Versatrans My Stop App for Parents and Guardians

The district’s entire fleet of buses is equipped with live GPS technology. The GPS system, Tyler Telematic GPS, allows the district to view the current location of any bus in real-time.  The GPS system includes an app that allows parents and guardians to track their child’s bus route. Learn more about the Versatrans My Stop app.
