A.W. Beattie C.C. Transportation

Dear Parents and Caretakers,

Busing information for students attending A.W. Beattie Career and Technical School has been updated in the My Ride app, formerly known as Traversa Ride 360, for the 2023-2024 school year. This information will be released on Thursday, August 10, 2023.

Students who require Deer Lakes Transportation to Beattie from home in the morning have an AM Beattie stop. If your student is being dropped off at the high school to catch the Beattie bus, please have them there by 6:45. The bus will leave the high school campus promptly at 6:50 to head to Beattie.

Additionally, students should have an AM and PM bus stop for their neighborhood bus on the Traversa Ride 360 app for days that Beattie does not have school, but Deer Lakes does. Listed below are the dates in which A.W. Beattie does not have school. On these days, Beattie students will need to catch their neighborhood bus to school. Students will wait in the high school library until their classes start.
