Transportation and Weather Delays

School cancellation

Snow Days: Due to hazardous road conditions, school may be cancelled.  Please check the following television stations for cancellation information:

Your student’s transportation will be dependent upon the town that you reside in. (Example: if your home town cancels but CTRA is open, there will be no transportation provided for your child.) CTRA follows a 2 hour delay. School will start at 9:30 a.m.

CTRA will follow East Hartford Public Schools cancellations or delayed openings due to inclement weather. If you see East Hartford listed on the local TV and radio stations, please follow that announcement. CTRA will also be listed, but we don’t normally show up until after East Hartford.

When all magnet schools and districts are closed RSCO Transportation will not transport students, i.e., all bus routes are canceled.  When only Hartford Public Schools (HPS) are closed, and the remaining magnet schools and/or districts are open, RSCO Transportation will not transport students, i.e., all bus routes are canceled. When HPS is open, and some magnet schools and/or districts are closed, RSCO Transportation will only transport students to and from those magnet school and/or districts that are open. 

Delayed openings 

 RSCO Transportation will delay bus routes using the magnet school or district with latest delay on the bus route.  

Early dismissals 

RSCO Transportation transports bus routes using the following early dismissal times: Tier 1 bus routes at 11:00 a.m. (CTRA). Please note: if a bus has more than one town on its route, and at least one of the towns has an early dismissal, then all the students on that bus route will be released early.
