If your child attends a magnet school program located in the district where you reside, the local district provides transportation (except for suburban PK3-PK4 - no transportation). 

Generally, transportation is available during regular school hours for K-12 students who:
- reside in towns included in the RSCO transportation zone; and
- attend out-of-district programs offered through RSCO (Open Choice, interdistrict magnet schools, Connecticut Technical High Schools, and Suffield Agriscience Center).

For students in grades PK3 and PK4, transportation is available to Hartford resident students attending an out-of-district program only.  For non-Hartford resident PK3 and PK4 students, the parent/guardian shall arrange transportation.  A stipend - paid at the end of the school year and based on the child's attendance - is available.   

If you live outside the RSCO Transportation Zone two options are available. Families may:
- transport the student themselves to and from school, and then request a stipend (paid at end of year based on child's attendance); or
- transport the student to the closest available stop located within RSCO's transportation zone (there is no stipend for this option).
