Transportation Information

TRANSPORTATION CHANGES (Effective April 22, 2024)
The transportation changes will affect the following students and are anticipated to be in place for the remainder of the school year:
Bus 806 Purple - All Students (Grades K-12)
Bus 815 Brown - Elementary Students (Grades K-6)
Bus 807 Green - Elementary Students (Grades K-6)
Transportation is provided to students who reside in the Cornell School District (Coraopolis and Neville Township). 
This district contracts transportaton services through:
Student Transportation of America (STA)
200 Kendall Street
Coraopolis, PA 15108
Please contact STA directly for Lost & Found items.
Bus schedules for the current school year are listed below (2023-2024 Cornell School District Bus Routes).  JSHS times are for students in Grades 7-12 and the Elementary times are for students in Kindergarten through Grade 6.
Should there be a road closure that prevents the bus from getting to your stop, please use the next closest stop location.

Please remember someone must be at the bus stop to meet your child at the end of the day.  If no one is at the bus stop, the student will be taken back to the elementary school where the parent will have to pick up their child.

Should there be a road closure that prevents the bus from getting to your stop, please use the next closest stop location. It is suggested that you teach your child how to get home from alternate stop locations so they are prepared in advance should the bus not be able to stop at the normal location.

DELAYED BUSES (Morning and Afternoon)

On occasion, a bus might be late picking up or dropping off students due to railroad traffic, road construction, weather conditions or a substitute driver.



In the mornings, there is no set time limit that a student should wait for a bus.  However, we suggest students wait at their bus stop a minimum of 10–15 minutes past the scheduled pick up time before returning home.



This occurs primarily with the elementary runs.  If there is a delay with a JSHS run or other route that will cause a ripple effect to the departure time of the elementary buses.


Please know that drivers strive to be consistent with pick up and drop off times but sometimes this is not possible.


In the event a bus does not arrive as scheduled, please contact Student Transportation of America (STA) at 412-269-9970 to check on the location of your child’s bus.  We ask that you allow 15 minutes before calling.


The district works closely with the bus company to ensure they are communicating if a bus is going to be late.  As a courtesy, if the district is notified in advance, an electronic notification (robocall) will be issued if a bus is anticipated to be late by 15 minutes or more.


Student Transportation of America (STA) is currently hiring for bus and van drivers, as well as monitors to ride with the students.  If you or anyone you know may be interested in working for STA, please call Lynn Fabian at 412-269-9970.

Please review the Parkway West Career & Technology Center (PWCTC) section listed on the menu located on the top right of this screen.
To assist with the safety of students and drivers, all STA buses and vans used to transport Cornell students to and from their assigned school are equipped with audio and video recording equipment
Reminders for drivers and tips for parents / students.
All rules, regulations, school district policies and procedures within the Student Code of Conduct / Student Handbook apply to all district provided transportation. 
If your child requires special transportation arrangements before and / or after school, please complete and submit the Special Transportation Request form.  Please be sure to read the letter prior to completing the form.
A new form must be completed every school year.
In case of school delays or closures, Cornell School District will communicate that information through our mass communication system (phone, email, and text), as well as on our District website and local news stations (KDKA, WPXI, and WTAE).  If you have any questions about your contact information you can contact the elementary (Ext. 1141) or high school (Ext. 1121) offices to verifiy the information on file.
If you have any questions related to student transportation, please contact Michelle Weaver, Cornell Transportation Coordinator, at 412-264-5010 ~ Ext. 1101 or via email at [email protected].
