Unlike most other charter schools, MITCS — in partnership with the Lincoln Park Performing Arts Charter School (LPPACS) — has a comprehensive transportation plan which is free and available to every student. LPPACS is also located in Midland, PA.
Students whose home school district is within a 10-mile radius of MITCS (Beaver, Blackhawk, Central Valley, Hopewell, Midland, Southside, Western Beaver) are bussed to MITCS by their district, paid for by that district.
For those students who live outside the 10-mile radius, MITCS, contracts with Rhodes Transit, a private company, to provide free bus service to and from school. Parents are responsible for transporting the students to and from one of several hubs each day. Rhodes Transit will pick students up at these hubs and drop them off there after school.
Bus Pickup/Drop Off for the 2022-2023 School Year
LPPCS hosts a Transportation Information website. The site details all bus routes, pickup and drop-off sites that will also be used by MITCS students. Please note, the bus stops are sorted by school district to help you identify the best route for your transportation needs. You are not limited to a bus that is listed for your home school district, feel free to select a bus and stop that is most convenient for you.
In Case of Inclement Weather
In the event of inclement weather, please tune in to your local news stations (WTAE, KDKA, WPXI) for up to date information. If MITCS should choose to close or delay, we will send out a robocall and post to our social media sites, in addition to local news stations. Instructions for students will be provided in Google Classroom for Flexible Instruction Days.
For those students living within the 10-mile radius, transportation will run according to your home district’s policy if MITCS is in session. Please reach out to your district for their specific instructions. Please remember, the safety of our students and staff is our highest priority. If you feel it is unsafe for your student to reach the school, please call the main office for your student to be excused for the day.
