Vivekanandha Academy provides a Daily Transport Facility for students to pick up and drop off. Our school buses are safe, well-maintained, and child-friendly. Each bus is driven by a well-trained driver and has the presence of a caregiver to escort the child. The provision of cell phones to the conductors facilitates two-way communications.
The need for safe passage of each child to school and back home is of paramount importance to us. To ensure safe travel the school has its own fleet of outsourced school buses designed as per standards and manned by trained drivers and personnel sensitized to the needs of small children.
The Transport Service (optional) is operated by the school and a separate transport fee is charged for this. For supervision and monitoring a transport attendant is on board throughout the journey Mobile phones have been provided in each bus that ensures efficiency in terms of service and better communication in case of emergencies. Besides ensuring the implementation of the safety norms, all staff on the bus is well trained in first aid and emergency management. Divisions and batches are allotted as per the transport requisitions put forth by the students as transport service is not available for a few batches. Kindly enquire with our transport department before finalizing the admission process.
To ensure the safety of our students, the following process is followed while ferrying them:

  • At the time of departure, the bus parent ensures students alight at pre-designated drop points. In case a student needs to alight at a different point, a prior note has to be sent to the Transport Officer.

  • An SMS message is sent to the parent(s) of a student - 5 to 10 minutes before the bus arrives at his/her designated pick-up/drop point. In the case of unexpected delays, the bus will wait till the parent arrives at the drop point, or, a person from our staff is allocated to alight along with the student.

  • The school bus is also used to ferry students for outings and field trips. In case somebody other than the parent has to come and pick the student up, a prior note has to be sent to the Transport Officer.

Transport Rules 

All bus users are expected to follow transport rules most strictly to ensure safety and security of all. Those who violate these rules will not be permitted to use the facility any further. The following rules have been framed mainly considering the Safety of the Children. All parents are requested to kindly co-operate to ensure the safe transportation of your children.

  • Parents of junior school children are requested to make sure that an authorized person is present at the bus stop till the school bus picks up the children in the morning and also that they are present at the bus stop when their child gets off the bus in the afternoon or evening.

  • The bus facility will be withdrawn for children whose parents do not follow this particular rule.

  • While dropping the children, the school bus will not wait at any stop to ensure that the child has been received by someone. The authorized person or parent should therefore make it a point to be present at the bus stop five minutes earlier. Students not being received by parents in the evenings will be brought back to school.

  • Students should be present at their bus stops a little earlier than the appointed time of departure. The bus will not wait for any late-comer. Please avoid chasing the school bus for your own safety.

  • Parents are requested not to give instructions to the bus driver or conductors directly. And also no instructions should be given to the office staff over phone regarding the bus. The school cannot be held responsible for any such instruction given.

  • Temporary changes in the bus stops for personal convenience are strictly not allowed. Any requests made for temporary changes in the bus stops will not be considered.

  • In case of any permanent change in the bus stops for the junior school children the parent or an authorized person should contact the Transport coordinator in person (not through a letter) and intimate the school, of the change well in advance before you instruct your ward of the change. The child (L.K.G. to Std. III) should wear the new ID card mentioning the new bus stop and bus no. from the date of changing. The child should wear temporary ID card provided by the school until permanent card is issued.

  • For the senior school children the change should be communicated through a letter addressed to the Manager, Transport department.
