St. Augustine of Canterbury School has both morning and afternoon bus transportation available for all students. Bus drivers pick-up and drop-off their passengers at central bus stop locations. Currently, there are four buses that transport students to various sections of South Brunswick, two buses for Franklin Park, two buses that travel to North Brunswick. In addition, some townships in the area provide reimbursement in lieu of bus service. A group of responsible and reliable students in the Seventh and Eighth grades make up our school’s Safety Patrol. These students assist other students in several ways:

In the morning, Safety Patrol members are posted at each entrance in order to help small children off the buses and out of their parents’ cars. 
After school, their job includes: helping students find their buses, assisting them in boarding, ensuring that all classes have left the building before buses depart.

All inquiries regarding busing services should be made to your Board of Education Transportation Department:
