Many districts in New Jersey offer transportation or help offset the cost of transportation to private school when students do not attend their local public school. The current reimbursement is $1000 per eligible student and is known as aid in lieu of transportation. If a town participates in aid in lieu, the eligibility is determined by the distance between home and school. Students in grades K-8 must live more than 2.0 miles but less than 20 miles. High school students must live more than 2.5 miles but less than 20 miles. Please check with your school district for specific aid in lieu participation and eligibility information. Note: You don’t need to pay for EC bussing to be eligible. Even if you drive your student to school, you may be eligible to receive this aid!
