For Parents: Transportation


The Bement School offers daily van transportation services each year. This service can run from the towns of Amherst, Holyoke, Northampton, Northfield, and Brattleboro, Vermont, but pickup points are dependent on having enough riders at each locale.
The service includes morning routes available that are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis to all interested Bement families. Students ride in our seven-passenger school vans, or contracted school busses and arrive at the school by 8:00AM every morning. The school also offers return van service to Northampton and Amherst each day throughout the week. The return service leaves Bement by 4:45 PM Monday – Thursday and by 3:45 PM on Fridays.

Costs for transportation service vary by route.  Pickup and return services are separate fees, as not everyone utilizes round-trip transportation. Please contact the business office for more information about routes, pricing, and combining transportation with after-school care.
