Shuttle Service

The Prep offers a shuttle service to and from Suburban Station at 16th and JFK Blvd.

Beginning at 7:15am Prep owned shuttle vans, which carry 9 students per run, along with buses run continually until 8:15am. These buses provide a great amount of flexibility for the students based on train arrival times along with shelter in case of inclement weather. Additionally, our Wolfington bus (SJ8) from the South Philadelphia route will pick up any student who may be waiting for a shuttle as it runs North on 16th Street past JFK.

  • Shuttle service from 16th and JFK to the Prep begins each morning at 7:15 AM and runs through 8:15 AM
  • Shuttle service from the Prep to 16th and JFK begins at 2:45 PM and runs continually on the half hour to 5:30 PM
  • 2019-2020 School Year price: $550/year or $275/year one way


We want to guarantee a safe and comfortable ride. At any time, your son may contact Security at the front desk 215-978-1000 to notify them if the train is running late or if they are running late. Security is in communication with the shuttle drivers at all times via radio and works to accommodate our students.
