Friends’ Central is committed to supporting the transportation needs of its students. There is a range of options available, including 

  • Free Public School District busing within a 10-mile radius of either campus
  • SEPTA trains and buses which drop off at the Overbrook Train Station and 63rd and Malvern Bus Depot. A free FCS Shuttle will complete the route with pick-ups and drop-offs, in both the AM and PM.

Buses are staffed with experienced and safe drivers who meet all state and federal requirements.

Families with students riding public school bus transportation are required to submit an Act 372 form to their School District's Transportation Department annually. Access to this form will be on the School District Transportation webpage with an "Act 372" or "Non-Public School Transportation" title. Click here for more information.

Lower School Families: The 2022-2023 Lower School Transportation Form for your child's afternoon dismissal plan is sent out in early August.  Please take the time to fill out the form and submit it so your child(ren's) transportation record can be updated for the start of school on September 7.
