Independent Schools Transportation Collaborative

University School partners with Laurel School and Hathaway Brown School to provide transportation options for students throughout 33 Greater Cleveland communities. 

Families whose children attend more than one of these schools will be able to use one transportation service. This expanded transportation access will complement bus service offered from many public-school districts.

Registration is required for the bus routes. The school will take into account public health and safety guidelines for transportation and spaces will be limited.
