Bus Information

At Head-Royce, we strive to be a good neighbor in the residential neighborhood we call home and have made a commitment to our neighbors to minimize traffic on Lincoln Avenue. Our transportation program helps us do just that. We offer two bus options as well as carpool information, available by logging into the parent portal. In this way, we’re making sure all of our students get to school in a safe and convenient way that works for all our students — whether they are in kindergarten or 12th grade.

Michael's

Our extensive, subsidized bus program offers families a safe, reliable and convenient way to get students to and from campus each day. Michael's Transportation bus service is $500 per family, which includes regular morning and afternoon buses.

You also have the option to purchase a bundle of 10 bus tickets, which is optimal for those who only ride the bus on occasion or would like a small supply of tickets available when accompanied home by a friend. Ticket bundles may be purchased at the Gatehouse.

Register Your Student for Michael's Transportation Bus Service

All buses will arrive to Head-Royce before 8:25 a.m. and depart at 3:30 p.m. If you need to contact Michael's Transportation Dispatch, call 707-643-2099.


Please note: If a Michael's bus will be 10 or more minutes late, parents will be notified via Text Alert.
