Private bus service for Xaverian students to and from School is available for students traveling from Lower Manhattan, Staten Island, and designated areas of Brooklyn and Queens. In conjunction with the School’s bus provider, Xaverian incorporates a safety plan containing procedures to ensure the safe transport of all students.
All students are required to arrive at the designated bus stop five (5) minutes before the scheduled pick up time
All students must possess proper student identification before being admitted on the bus, and when requested by the bus driver or bus attendant. New students will be on the drivers’ passenger list, which will serve as their ID until such time that they receive theirs from Xaverian.
Use only his/her designated bus stop.
Respect the rights and property of others on the bus and at the bus stop.
Students are expressly prohibited from transporting any hazardous objects as defined in the Xaverian Student Handbook.
Always enter and exit the bus through the entrance door except in emergencies or as instructed by the Driver.
Keep all parts of the body inside the bus.
Profane language, obscene gestures, fighting, or anything deemed inconsistent with Xaverian students expectations will result in termination of eligibility and subject to disciplinary action by Xaverian.
The annual fee for bus service for the 2023-2024 school year is $2,200.00. Xaverian provides two options for payment. Both options are billed through your SMART TUITION account.
Full payment plan: A 10% discount is given if a full payment of $2,000.00 is made by September 1st.
Monthly payment plan: A monthly fee of $220.00 from September through June will be billed through your SMART TUITION account.
As in the past, families contract bus service for the entire School year whether or not it is utilized. There is not an option for one-way service, nor is there an option to enroll on an as needed basis for bus service.
All payments are made through your SMART tuition account and are subject to the same payment policies pertaining to tuition payments. There are no refunds for cancellation by a parent during the school year.
To facilitate the implementation of these plans, it is important that we have an accurate indication of our ridership. Please note that the deadline for registration has been modified from last year.
The deadline for all registration is Friday, August 21st.
Full payment is due by September 1st, or if you choose a monthly plan your first payment is due with your September SMART remittance invoice.

ROUTES: There are currently 14 routes transporting Xaverian students. These routes are adjusted annually, relative to the number of students registered and their home addresses. Stops are set within a reasonable distance of a student’s home wherever possible and are subject to change based on enrollment.
In order to facilitate convenience for each student, the routes are not established, nor are families notified, until late August or the first week of September. While we will not be able to tell you the location and time of the student’s pick up until then, we can advise that it will be as close to the student’s home as possible and that the pickup will most likely be between 6:30 AM and 7 AM. Music students will always arrive (barring traffic) for any activities that take place before school.
Xaverian provides late bus service for students who participate in extracurricular activities and are already enrolled with either of the Private Bus companies. As they are provided as needed, you must enroll your child each day that you need service. To do so, please click here.
