In an effort to allow all students access to public transit, Larkspur- Corte Madera School District will once again offer families a subsidy on Youth Tickets and the Marin Youth Pass which serve all local routes.
Marin Transit District will operate two route 117 busses in the morning (east to west and west to east) serving Hall, Neil Cummins, and The Cove School.
Check this link for timetables: Route 117
For elementary students attending The Cove and/or Neil Cummins and who reside in Larkspur, the District will assign a transportation aide to ride the bus for supervision and safety purposes.
Bus passes are available for purchase in each school office.
The cost of a Youth Pass is $210, which is 65% of the cost of a regular Youth Pass with District cost-sharing. We strongly encourage families to use public transportation and/or carpool to school. Safe Routes to Schools parent liaisons will work throughout the year to support walk, ride, and roll programs. We are proud of the sustainability efforts in the District.
Eligibility forms for FREE Youth Bus Passes are also available in either English or Spanish. Discounted passes will not be available unless this form is completed and on file the school office. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school office, 415-927-6978 ext 2250, firstname.lastname@example.org
