Private bus service, provided by DeVille Bus Company, is available for students traveling from Lower Manhattan, Staten Island, and parts of Brooklyn and Queens.
The annual fee for bus service for the 2018-2019 is $2,200.00.
Families contract bus service for 10 months (September – June). Each family has the option to pay in full before August 15th and receive a $200 discount or be billed for eight monthly payments of $275.00 per student beginning in September and running through April. All payments are made through your SMART tuition account.
There is not an option for one-way service, nor is there an option to enroll on a monthly basis.
There are currently 14 routes transporting Xaverian and Genesis 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 pickup 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.
