2021-2022 Transportation Routes & Details

As an independent school, Forest Ridge draws students from a large geographical area. Our goal is to offer transportation routes that accommodate the largest number of students across the area to meet the needs of our busy families.

We recognize the importance of student transportation and have made considerable investments into providing a premier service for participating families. Our program features six routes and 12 pick-up and drop-off locations for both before- and after-school transportation. We also operate an after-school activity bus route with 3 drop-off locations providing service for after school drama, athletics and special events.

Our transportation program is operated by Forest Ridge employees that are known to you and your daughter and utilizes a fleet of Mercedes Sprinter vans and Freightliner shuttle buses that have been designed to support this service. Our optimized routing and specialized vehicles reduce your daughters time on the road while giving her access to the space and resources that enable her to relax or focus on homework while in transit.
