As we gear up for our upcoming summer program, we are excited to announce the details for student bus transportation. 

This optional fee-based service is available to all summer students and provides round trip transportation to and from our location at BASIS Independent Brooklyn. Our buses serve lower Manhattan, and several central and northern Brooklyn neighborhoods, including Williamsburg, Dumbo, downtown Brooklyn, Park Slope and Carroll Gardens. We also offer limited service to East Flatbush.

Buses are available during all seven weeks of the summer program, which runs from July 5-August 19th. Each bus comes with air conditioning and is staffed with a bus matron at all times.

Bus Transportation Overview: 

Cost: $100 per week for round trip service 

Pick up and Drop off Times: Depending on the individual route, our buses begin their routes at approximately 7:30-7:45 AM and arrive on campus by 8:30 AM. For the return trip, our buses leave the school at approximately 3:30-3:45 PM and complete their route by 4:30 PM. Keep in mind actual times may vary to account for traffic and other delays. 

Parents and students must arrive in time for their scheduled pickup and drop off times. It is recommended that you arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your scheduled pickup and drop off time.

How to register: 

Registration is through our online payment portal supplied by the Active Network. Parents can register for bus transportation in the same way they select their individual courses by choosing each individual week of service and the specific bus route. 

  • For parents that already have an Active Network profile, you simply log in to your current profile and add each individual week plus the specific route that you want. 
  • For parents without an Active Network profile, you will be asked to create a profile by clicking on the register now for summer programs button below and then select your individual week and route.

It is important to remember that if you register for more than one week, you must check the routes and stops during each week because they will change. Below is the schedule for July and August. Stops will be at the intersection of the streets listed below.
