RubyPark Public School provides transportation facilities to its students for safe and smooth journey to and fro the school premises.

The School runs the latest Euro IV compliant air-conditioned buses equipped with CCTV, First Aid Box & Fire Extinguisher. All School Buses are electronically connected to the Control Room through GPS Tracking System. The parents are informed about the bus reaching the drop point (under normal traffic conditions) say 10 minutes beforehand by sending an auto-generated SMS. A Lady attendant accompanies the students of the Junior Classes.

However, it offers no guarantee that a seat will be available at all times as it is on first-come-first-served basis. The transport network covers the major part of the city and routes are designed to be student-friendly. However, if the bus does not ply in the area of residence, parents or local/legal guardians will be responsible to drop / collect the student from the stop.

The exact pick up & drop points can be informed only at the beginning of the session. Inspite of the best efforts, due to unavoidable circumstances, transport routes may change without prior intimation or explanation. Also, transport routes applicable in the Junior Classes may not be applicable in the Senior Classes.
