With 24 stops in San Francisco and 19 in Marin County, the MCDS transportation department upholds our founder's mission: to blend urban and suburban families and teachers, creating a community enriched by multiple perspectives.

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. MCDS bus service is operated by the school's own transportation department, consisting of seven dedicated bus drivers and ten buses all held to strict safety standards.

Bus routes are determined by ridership, safety and length of time.
