    We offer free shuttle service from and to the downtown Santa Rosa SMART Train depot. The shuttle will pick up from the Santa Rosa station 7:35 am and transport students to school. In the afternoons, the shuttle will depart Sonoma Academy at 3:40 pm and 6:05 pm. On sleep-in days, there will be two morning shuttles. One that picks up at the Train depot at 7:54 am and one at 8:55 am.

  • What is the cost?

    Bus service cost depends on both distance and ridership in any given year, since with more riders the price per family is reduced. Fees from this year are as follows:
    • Sonoma, South Sonoma, Glen Ellen: $1400 (about $8 per day)
    • St. Helena: $2500 (about $14 per day)*
    • Napa: $2500 (about $14 per day)*
    *The St. Helena and Napa routes are more expensive because they are provided by a chartered bus with a longer distance traveled, and the ridership is lower.

  • Does the bus run both in mornings and evenings?

    Bus transportation from Napa and Sonoma will only be offered in the mornings; carpools often accommodate students in the afternoons.

    Starting in the 2018-19 school year, shuttle service to and from the Downtown Santa Rosa SMART Train station will be offered both mornings and afternoons.
