Park School Shuttle: The School provides free shuttles daily between two MBTA stations: Brookline Village (on the Riverside Green Line), Forest Hills (on the Orange Line), and the School. In the morning, the shuttles, which are driven by Park staff members, depart the stations at 7:45 a.m. The shuttles return students to these stations, leaving School at 3:15 p.m. and 4:45 p.m. daily (Tuesdays at 2:15 p.m.), and at 12:10 p.m. on all-School early-dismissal days. Children below Grade IV should be accompanied by an older child when using the T. Parents need to inform their child’s teacher when a student is going to ride the shuttle but there is no registration required.
Contracted Bus Service: Park has a relationship with Local Motion of Boston, which operates point-to-point service from the Back Bay and Beacon Hill (Big East Bus), and from Wellesley and Newton (Big West Bus). The family-based, annual fee is calculated by route each year based upon the number of participating families. Families have full flexibility to use the bus as frequently as they would like during the week. During the 2011-12 academic year, approximately 23 percent of Park students rode one of these buses.
Both the Big East and the Big West Bus pick up students in the morning and drop them off in the afternoon at designated stops. Students may ride the bus after the 3:00 p.m. or the 4:30 p.m. dismissal (2:00 p.m. on Tuesdays). Parents should inform their child’s teacher and the front desk if there are any changes to the regular afternoon schedule.
Detailed bus schedules will be available soon and can be downloaded from this page. Please check back.
