Children are transported to and from school via carpools or school buses. While the school provides assistance, ultimate responsibility for getting to and from school rests with each family. The commute typically becomes a pleasant daily ritual - a time of conversation and camaraderie with friends.
Bus routes are determined by ridership demand, safety considerations and length of riding time. Though subject to modification before the start of each school year, MCDS buses typically transport children to pick-up and drop-off points in the following areas:
Marina, Cow Hollow, Presidio Heights, Pacific Heights, Seacliff, Richmond, Forest Hills, Haight Ashbury, Western Addition, Noe Valley.
Fairfax, San Anselmo, Ross, Kentfield, Greenbrae, Larkspur, Corte Madera, Mill Valley, Tiburon, Belvedere.
MCDS bus service is operated by the school's own Transportation Department rather than contracted out. All MCDS buses are owned by the school and meet strict safety and repair requirements. They are inspected regularly by State safety officials and daily by the drivers.
