In addition to the safe transport of your children, we at The Park School Transportation Department have committed ourselves to the development of services that save families time and money, while reducing traffic and emissions.
Park offers bus transportation to and from many areas in Baltimore City and County, and Howard County. Our goal is to limit student travel time to under one hour. The fee for this service is based on one-way or round-trip travel, and number of transported children per family. You may sign up by trimester, if desired. If you have any questions related to transportation, routes, stops, or fees, please direct your inquiries to our Transportation Department (email@example.com or 410.339.4110).
Bus interiors will be cleaned/disinfected prior to every trip. Buses will not run at full seating capacity — physical distancing guidelines will be enforced with limited, assigned seats (siblings may sit together). The bus driver and all students will wear face coverings. Windows will be cracked to provide increased ventilation. Hand sanitizer will be available on board all buses.
Please note: Due to State regulations and Park School’s health and safety measures for our Kindergarten building, Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students may not ride the bus as we begin the 2020–21 school year.
Park continues its bus program built around community-based stops allowing for minimal ridership requirements and designed to keep travel times to a minimum.
In addition to our established routes, we are offering two new routes: one along the Reisterstown Road corridor and the other serving the I-83 North corridor (Lutherville/Timonium).
Registration information and finalized route information is now available below. The viability of routes is dependent upon participation levels; please let us know of your interest in any route, or if you have any questions at all.
Harford County residents: Please contact the Transportation Department if interested in bus service.
Considering the bus but want another parent's opinion? Click here to read this unsolicited testimonial (“Get Onboard the Park Bus!”) from Mark Davison. Mark’s family has been using Park transportation for the last three years — they are big fans. Thank you, Mark, for sharing your experiences!
As many of you know, Park’s third graders have taken the initiative to research the environmental and economic effects of idling engines. We implemented a practice this past school year whereby drivers of gas and diesel vehicles on the Park campus — cars, vans, trucks, buses, motorcycles — are asked to cease idling for any period longer than 10 seconds. Thank you for your participation in this effort! Our bus drivers have also adopted a modified idling program whereby bus idling is limited to the amount of time required to adequately warm up the bus engine for efficient and extended operation.
Updated routes for the 2020-2021 school year are here!
Registration is offered for the full year and each trimester. The first trimester (fall) is shorter than the winter and spring trimesters. This is due to the fall athletic season beginning in the summer. Exact dates may change each year but will typically run as follows:
|Description||Round Trip||One Way||Round Trip (Falls Rd Light Rail)||One Way (Falls Rd Light Rail)|
|Winter or Spring||$740||$485||$215||$140|
|Winter or Spring Sibling||$485||$310||$215||$140|
|US/MS 2 day Full Year||$612||$408||$136||*see below|
|US/MS 2 day Fall||$132||$99||$33||*see below|
|US/MS 2 day Winter or Spring||$308||$196||$84||*see below|
*Falls Road Light Rail stop is one rate for US/MS 2 day students.
If an area is not currently being served, please contact our Transportation Department (firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-339-4110) to discuss route expansion. Increased demand helps to justify the expansion of our service.
