Bus Routes


Poly students travel to school from their homes in all five boroughs, New Jersey, and Long Island. There are no extra costs to ride the Poly buses which are used by more than 85% of the student body and include 42 bus routes for the Dyker Heights campus and six routes for the Park Slope campus. Each year, we optimize the system to account for where our families live, closely reviewing and tweaking the routes—with more than 250 stops—to ensure safety and equity.

At the Lower School, many students arrive on foot, by scooter, bike, or car. Families who live more than a mile from the landmarked building often choose to use the Poly bus service. Adult monitors help our youngest students get used to being on the bus and supervise all the riders. There is also a shuttle bus service between the Dyker Heights campus and the Park Slope campus each morning and afternoon. 

At Dyker Heights, most students stay after school for clubs, theater rehearsals, sports practices, and other activities. The Dyker Heights campus has two afternoon bus runs at 4:00 PM and 6:00 PM that go in the reverse of the morning routes. There is also an evening run on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:30 PM to main subway hubs.
