Transportation Options

Riverdale students come to school each day from 104 different ZIP codes, which means that students arrive in many different ways.

Supertrans Bus Company provides bus service for our Lower School students from Manhattan and the Bronx. Our buses cover areas from Battery Park City to Inwood. Our Lower School students have door-to-door pickup. Supertrans also provides bus service to the Middle and Upper School campus from Manhattan, the Bronx, New Jersey, Connecticut and some towns in Westchester. Supertrans also runs a shuttle bus to the school from the local subway for those students who choose to take the subway to school using their MetroCards, which are distributed free of charge to students who sign up. Supertrans runs two afternoon departures, one right after school is dismissed, and another one that leaves the Hill Campus at 6:00 p.m.

Westchester Buses
Some students coming from Westchester are able to register with their local school district to use the town’s school bus provider. This includes Harrison, Larchmont, and Mamaroneck. To determine whether your town will provide buses, please contact your town hall.

After School
Supertrans allows students to take alternate routes in the afternoon. Parents of Lower School students must provide advanced notice if their children will be taking a different return route.

Bus Pickup and Departure Times
Because our students come from so many different areas, it is hard to specify the time that most students are picked up and dropped off. If you have specific questions about your area, please contact the Admission Office. 

Students Come From...

Brooklyn, the Bronx, Connecticut, Manhattan, New Jersey, Queens, and Westchester County.
