Report a Late Bus
North Hills families are reminded that if a bus is late or has not arrived within an acceptable time frame for the morning pickup to call the North Hills School District’s transportation provider ABC Transit at 412-821-4000. This contact number puts our parents in direct contact with ABC Transit dispatchers who can radio a driver to inquire as to their whereabouts. A parent may then decide whether to wait for the bus or drive their student to school. Please do not call your student’s school building or main office as a first option. Contacting a school building first will not yield an immediate or faster response.
