Daily Student Transportation

There are several potential means of transportation to and from The Masters School.These include school district busing, Metro North train & shuttle, private Masters School busing, as well as private group busing and carpooling.

New York Districts Providing Bus Transportation

Most New York towns and villages within a 15-mile radius of The Masters School that provide busing to public school students will provide busing to Masters students as well (list of districts). However, it is advised that you contact your home school district’s transportation office regarding its specific policy on busing to independent schools. The deadline for requesting bus transportation through your home school district is April 1st.

 

All district school buses arrive at Masters by 8:00 a.m., in time for the start of the school day. Most buses return to Masters in time for each of two dismissal times – 3:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. The time your child will be picked up in the morning or dropped off in the afternoon is determined by each individual bus company in conjunction with your local transportation office.

Some families drop off and pick up their children each day. We're happy to help new families meet other families who live near their homes to facilitate carpooling. If you have any questions about Masters’ transportation options, please contact the Director of Security & Safety, Fernando Mejia, at 914.479.6505, Fernando.Mejia@MastersNY.org.
