Bus Transportation

Bus Transportation

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, Harford 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. 2019–20 bus routes have been set. Details are below. Note the timing of these stops are approximate until they are finalized based on registrations. If you have any questions related to transportation, please direct your inquiries to our Transportation Department (transportation@parkschool.net or 410.339.4110).

Carpooling

If interested, please contact the Transportation Department.

Route information

Park continues its bus program built around community-based stops allowing for minimal ridership requirements and designed to keep travel times to a minimum. Detailed route information is below. 

Harford County residents: Please contact the Transportation Department if interested in bus service.

Late-Run Bus Service

Our late-run bus service will not be available this year. If you have questions about, or interest in, a late bus option, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

Idling Reduction

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.
