Let COLTS get you to school!COLTS and Scranton School District are beginning an unprecedented partnership to make it easy for all students to attend school.
Beginning Sept. 7, 2021Students from South Scranton now attend West Scranton High School.
In an effort to ensure students can make the transition as easily as possible, COLTS is beginning a new route open to the public that will serve South Scranton. It will service both West Scranton High School and Scranton High School in the morning, and West Scranton High School in the afternoon. Scranton High School students can take the #43 Viewmont/Bangor in the afternoon to get to the Lackawanna Transit Center.
The Scranton School District has purchased monthly bus passes for its high school students who live two miles or beyond their school, and students who qualify will be able to pick them up at their school offices.
The #40 Luzerne/Providence also travels near South Scranton Intermediate School and West Scranton Intermediate School.
Students who ride any bus, not just the students who live in South Side, can benefit from this partnership because the #40 Luzerne/Providence stops at the Lackawanna Transit Center (LTC), where students can transfer from any route.
Getting to School:
Take the #40 Luzerne / Providence, which drops off at West Scranton High School at 7:35 a.m. and at Scranton High School at 7:55 a.m.
Scranton High School students who take other bus routes can get off at the Transit Center and transfer to the #40 Luzerne/Providence when it stops there at 7:45 a.m., leaving at 7:50 a.m. for SHS. You will arrive at SHS at 7:55 a.m.
West Scranton High School students who take other bus routes can transfer at the Transit Center
to the outbound #31 Old Forge / Stauffer at 7:15 a.m., which will drop you off at the corner of Main and Luzerne (near Walgreen’s) around 7:53 a.m. You will then walk three blocks up Luzerne Street to the high school.
