Transportation Services

St. Andrew’s provides the following transportation services for our day and residential students.

Statewide Transportation
Students from participating school districts who are eligible to use the statewide transportation system next year must annually request transportation through the statewide website at https://www.eride.ri.gov/transparForm/. Transportation requests are open for Fall 2024. Both current and new riders must register by July 31. Please call TransPar at 401-304-9136 or email them at [email protected] with any questions.

For school delays and closures, St. Andrew’s uses the SwiftK12 emergency notification system to send text, email, and phone call alerts to families. Delays and closures are also listed via Rhode Island Broadcasters Association.

Limited Morning-only Transportation Options

Starting with the 2024-2025 school year, St. Andrew’s School has partnered with Moses Brown School and The Wheeler School to provide morning-only bus transportation services to a limited number of students along two separate routes. St. Andrew’s day students who enroll in the transportation option will ride a bus each morning along with kindergarten through 12th grade students from Moses Brown and Wheeler, and will be dropped off at St. Andrew’s in Barrington in time for the start of classes at 8:15 a.m. Transportation home from St. Andrew’s will not be provided and remains the responsibility of each student’s family.

Important: This morning-only transportation option will be offered only if we get a minimum number of four students to sign up for the service for each of the two routes by July 15. If not enough families register, this option will not be provided.

Details:

  • A limited number of spots are available on either of the two routes. A family that enrolls in this transportation option must sign a separate transportation agreement and pay for the services for the year in advance, as specified in the agreement.

Carpooling

Weekend Activities
St. Andrew’s provides transportation for school-sponsored weekend activities, for both participating Upper School day and residential students.

Residential Student Transportation
St. Andrew’s School is happy to provide our residential families with shuttle services to and from Boston’s Logan (BOS) Airport and Providence (PVD) Airport at the beginning and end of each school-recognized break. 

For All Residential Student Arrivals from School Breaks: 
St. Andrew’s will offer two different shuttle options on the date of arrival/dorm opening following a school break (Thanksgiving Break, Winter Break, and March Break). Shuttle times from Boston’s Logan airport are as follows: 1:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. A St. Andrew’s staff member will be located at the information desk of Terminal E. Shuttle times from Providence’s TF Green airport can be scheduled based on students’ itineraries.

St. Andrew’s cannot guarantee shuttle services outside of these times. Shuttles outside of these times will be assessed a fee. It is important that students travel on designated travel days. Any travel that takes place outside the announced dates must be approved to be excused from academic consequences. 

For All Residential Student Departures: 
St. Andrew’s will offer two different shuttle options on the date of departure/dorm closure (typically a morning and evening shuttle). Shuttle times will be scheduled based on students’ flight itineraries. In addition, we will provide a single shuttle the morning after the stated departure date that will leave campus at 9:00 a.m.* When planning, please make every effort to travel on the announced dates. Any academic classes or assignments missed due to unapproved travel may impact a student’s academic standing. (*Students who stay on campus overnight to catch the 9:00 a.m. shuttle will be charged a housing fee of $50.)
