The New Hampshire Department of Transportation does not provide transportation for any New Hampshire students.
RSA 189:6 Transportation of Pupils. The local school districts shall furnish transportation to all pupils in grade 1 through grade 8 who live more than 2 miles from the school to which they are assigned.
This is a statutory and constitutional requirement/obligation of all public schools in the State of New Hampshire.
It is the responsibility of each school district to provide all students described in RSA 189:6 with transportation to school.
A school district may rely on parents who voluntarily bring their pupils to school. However, the school district must provide transportation for all other students described in RSA 189:6 to the school.
