Private Bus Service 2023-2024
The following is a summary of the proposed bus service for the 2023-2024 school year. We will determine the exact times, and stops based on the demand for this service.

Departing Routes: The afternoon school buses will leave Malden Catholic at 5:15 p.m. The routes will run in reverse from the morning schedule
Please note that the bus schedule does not change for early dismissals or late starts. The only time we alter the schedule is for finals week. So a snow delay would only be for school hours, the buses will still run on normal schedules, there will be people at the school when the buses arrive.
The cost of the private service is as follows: (subject to change based on registrations)
- $1600 per student for the full year, round trip
- $800 per student for the full year, morning only ($400 per semester)
- $800 per student for the full year, afternoon only ($400 per semester)
(Please note that Malden Catholic covers over 50% of the total costs to run this program in order to keep the above pricing structure lower for our families.)
Seats offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Some bus stops may not be able to run if we do not have enough riders.
