Bussing

Pingry has been working closely with its partner, the Kensington Bus Company, to ensure that group-stop routes, including the Intercampus Shuttle, continue to serve the transportation needs of our community while following the New Jersey Department of Education’s safety guidelines. Pingry will require all riders to wear face masks and face shields. Following each run, enhanced cleaning protocols on buses will be implemented. Detailed information, including previous communications specific to transportation as well as a link to register for a group-stop route or the Intercampus Shuttle, can be found on pingry.org/transportation.
