When a number of students are coming from a particular area outside normal public school busing routes, Hackley will try to work with families to set up appropriate group transportation.
Some families deliver and pick up their children at school daily -- by choice or in absence of other alternatives. We're happy to help new families meet other families who live near their homes to facilitate carpooling.
All school buses arrive at Hackley between 7:40 and 8:00 a.m., in time for the start of the school day. Buses return to Hackley in time for each of two dismissal times -- 2:45 and 4:30. The time your child will be picked up in the morning or dropped off in the afternoon is determined by the relevant bus company.
We currently have a bus company that transports students residing in the Bronx, Yonkers, and Mt. Vernon. For questions about busing from the Bronx, Yonkers, or Mt. Vernon, please feel free to contact Jen Moroney, Managing Assistant for Operations and Campus Planning, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (914) 366-2619.
District transportation information can sometimes change from year to year. We encourage families interested in district transportation to confirm transportation availability and eligibility directly with their school district.
Families considering Hackley are encouraged to check with their local school districts regarding the district's policy on busing to private or independent schools. Those towns and villages within a 15-mile radius of Hackley School that regularly provide busing to public school students are required to provide busing to Hackley as well.
Families who are eligible for district transportation to Hackley School will need to submit a transportation application to their local school district by April 1st each year. The application can be found in your school district’s transportation website. If you have any questions about school district transportation, please contact Jen Moroney, Managing Assistant for Operations and Campus Planning, at email@example.com or (914) 366-2619.

ISN'T HACKLEY PRETTY FAR FROM NYC?
Hackley is only 23 miles from East or West 96th Street, and when travelling opposite rush hour traffic, the trip takes a little over 30 minutes - quicker than many trips across town!
Parents can take the train up (we're one mile from the Tarrytown station, which is a regular express stop on Metro North) or enjoy a short drive to see athletic competitions, plays, concerts, and exhibitions on our beautiful 285-acre campus.
Our daily buses, which include separate East and West Side morning service with pick-up location between 70th and 96th street, also allow a ride home for students staying after school for sports practices, drama rehearsals and other extracurricular activities. Afternoon return service leaves Hackley at 4:45pm and 6:10pm.
Feel free to call or email Peter Sawkins, Director of Auxiliary Programs, for further information about transportation from Manhattan, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (914) 366-2675.
