Day Student Transportation Options
As parents and students go through the Solebury School admission process, transportation options are an important component in the decision to attend a school. Here are the transportation options available to Solebury School families.
Option 1: Transportation Provided by Pennsylvania School Districts
The following school districts will bus students to Solebury School at no extra charge:
- Central Bucks East School District
- Central Bucks West School District
- Central Bucks South School District
- Council Rock School District (Note: All new students requesting transportation will be required to show District four proofs of residency.)
- New Hope-Solebury School District
- Palisades School District
- Pennridge School District
Option 2: Car Pooling
There may be families from your area currently attending Solebury School, and we can assist you in creating a car-pooling arrangement.
Option 3: PA/NJ Private Van Transportation
Van transportation is an option for families who are outside their public school districts that bus to Solebury School. Vans currently serve the Yardley / Newtown area in Pennsylvania and the Flemington, Skillman, Lawrenceville, Pennington, Princeton and West Windsor areas in New Jersey.
Each year we review the locations of those who are interested and develop preliminary routes, stops and times for your consideration, based on how best to accommodate the number and location of riders. Stops will be at designated pick-up and drop off points or door to door, depending on a variety of factors.
Morning pick-up times will be arranged to arrive in time for the start of classes at 8:30am. Evening buses will depart Solebury at 5:30pm, following afternoon activities.
For general questions and costs for the current year, please email Transportation Director Peter Redmond at email@example.com or call him at 215.862.5261, ext. 169.
