SJP students who live in the Maspeth, Middle Village, Glendale and Ridgewood area, may opt to use our St. John's Prep Bus Shuttle service in the morning.
- This service is a convenient way for some families in our school community to transport their child to St. John's Prep.
- The annual cost of the bus service is $900 for the first student, with each sibling costing only $100 additional for the year. Payment covers one-way transportation to school each day.
- On “delayed opening" days, the route times will be adjusted based on the established opening schedule.
- The Bus Registration/Parent Agreement Form is posted below. Parents should complete this form and submit the non-refundable deposit fee of $100 by May 1 to ensure their child's spot on the bus for the upcoming year.
- Availability of the bus service will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.
