We are excited to announce the SCHuttle, a brand-new, customized transportation service for our Center City families. This service is available to students of all ages in all divisions.
SCH has partnered with ShuttleBee –– a premiere service offering safe, hassle-free, family-friendly, door-to-door transportation supported by state-of-the-art technology.
The SCHuttle offers the following distinctive features:
Safety: Drivers undergo extensive background tests and are road-tested with kids. Check out ShuttleBee's driver profiles, bios, and contact information here. ShuttleBee will ensure that your child is always safe by using a booster seat or a seat belt, depending on your child’s age and weight.
GPS tracking: Parents can track their child’s van location in real time using the ShuttleBee app.
Communication: A ShuttleBee concierge is always on call, and parents have the ability to communicate directly with their driver via the ShuttleBee app.
Flexible afternoon departures: Choose a 3:30 PM or 5:30 PM departure for each season, to accommodate your child's after-school activities and sports.
* At this time we are able to offer our SCHuttle service to families in the following zip codes: 19123, 19107, 19106, 19103, 19146, 19147, 19104, and 19130.
Transportation will be made available based on sufficient enrollment.
Parents who wish to utilize our SCHuttle service need to submit their contract as soon as possible, in order to be assigned to a route.
Parents will be notified about estimated pickup and drop-off locations and times by July 31, 2018.
Routes will be customized by location within the zip codes indicated (see left).
Route expansions in subsequent years will be considered with adequate demand.
Late enrollments—after June 30—will be accepted only if space is available and the requested transportation stop is along the already published route.
If there is an occasional transportation need, and space allows, families must submit a contract form at least three days in advance of the requested date and agree to the daily rate of $40.
The SCHuttle will offer two afternoon departure times—3:30 PM and 5:30 PM—based on adequate enrollment. Please register for one time per school season (fall, winter, spring). Availability of two afternoon options (3:30 and 5:30 PM) is not guaranteed but will be determined by the number of requests for each desired route time.
Changes to departure time during the school year may be made if space allows.
