Why a transportation program?

Our program is a great way to reduce transportation costs and provides another opportunity for students to meet and socialize with classmates!

Participation Options

In an effort to minimize traffic on the Hill and impact to our neighbors, Flintridge Sacred Heart has established a transportation program whereby all students are required to participate in one of the transportation options described below. The program is beneficial to our families as well, as it reduces overall transportation costs and provides another means by which students may meet and socialize with their classmates.

Ride the Bus

If you live near a bus stop, this is the easiest option. It is convenient, safe, economical, eco-friendly, more reliable than car-transportation and provides relief to parent drivers. Currently, there are three bus routes. See the link to the right for our current bus schedule, which includes a late bus at 5:40 PM.

The annual bus fee for the 2024-25 school year is $1,695. Siblings ride for free. In addition, parents are credited 15 service hours, a $225 value, reducing the cost to approximately $5.14 per trip. Sign up and pay in full by May 6, 2024 for a $75 discount.


Students who do not live near a bus stop may carpool with an eligible student driver or parent driver. Flintridge Sacred Heart provides a number of resources to assist parents in identifying a carpool partner.

Single Occupancy Vehicles

Only students with a zero period class or morning sports practice may arrive on campus with only one student in the car.
"It's a social fun time and easy way to make new friends. And, you can do your homework or take a nap because the seats are so comfortable."
—Lauren Lubeley '19 and Jillian Willis '19

Morning vs. Afternoon Transportation Requirements

In May, registration is required for your transportation mode for arrival at school during the morning peak hours of 7:00 AM to 8:00 AM. While students are encouraged to maintain their carpool/bus ridership during the peak afternoon hour of 2:45 PM to 3:45 PM as well, departure transportation modes are not mandated due to the variables in student after-school activities.
