“I love the bus,” says one of our regular riders. “It’s like a play date every morning.”
Rashi offers morning and afternoon bus transportation Monday through Friday to help families get their children safely to and from school. Transportation is provided by Local Motion and all buses have seatbelts. Families may sign up for the bus for the entire academic year or buy a 10-ride packet for occasional use.
 
Families who choose to drive their children to school will find ample parking in our lots as well as a clearly marked and attended drop-off circle. Our parking lot includes priority parking for those families who choose to carpool as well as those who drive energy efficient vehicles.
