Sandy Spring Friends School offers option bus transportation for the convenience of our parents. Bus routes are offered in Montgomery, Howard, and Prince George’s counties and in Washington, DC, for students starting in preschool (age 4) through 12th grade. Please note that the routes are determined by student need each year and are subject to change.
Buses are scheduled so that they can arrive at SSFS at or before 7:45 am; depending on the route, the first morning pick-up location is between 6:40-7:00 am. Buses depart SSFS at 3:45 pm (2:45 pm on Wednesdays). Riders can choose to use bus transportation in the mornings, afternoons, or both, and can also select which days of the week they would like to ride.
In addition, we offer an afternoon free bus shuttle service each day for middle and upper school students participating in athletics and other after-school activities; this bus departs from the Middle School circle on campus at 5:45 pm to take students to the Glenmont and Shady Grove metro stations.
