How do families get to Town every day?

Town families travel from as close as the apartment building next door and as far as New Jersey and Staten Island

We go out of our way to support families in determining the most expedient commute. We offer flexible drop-off times (as early as 7:30 am) and after-school care (as late as 6:00 pm) for families' convenience. 


We’ve recently expanded our roundtrip bus service to make Town even more accessible to families around the city. Bus service is at no additional cost to families, a rarity among our peer schools. We have bus routes originating in Brooklyn (Downtown Brooklyn), Lower Manhattan (Tribeca), Midtown, and the east and west sides from 125th street south (two separate routes).  

Public Transportation: Bus or Subway

Students are eligible for a free full-fare MetroCard, as long as you live a 1/2 mile or more away from school. All MetroCards are provided via a Department of Education program, which allows for school-day travel from 5:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Town takes care of the application process for all families and distributes the cards to students when school begins in September.


We are always happy to help connect families with nearby neighbors to discuss carpooling options.

NYC Ferry

Town is located right on the East River, and our closest Ferry stop is East 90th Street. Check out the map and schedules to learn more about ferry service. A current Town family living in the Bronx shortened their morning commute by 40 minutes when incorporating the Ferry.

And there are plenty of other options...

Families also use yellow cabs, ride services, and private cars. We’re located at the end of a cul-de-sac, making for a smooth drop-off. Plenty of families also walk or scoot to school, and our scooter docks out front of the school are often packed. Several Town faculty and staff members are bicycle commuters, traveling from all over the city. Though we do not have extensive bike storage outside the school, we're happy to discuss how bicycling to school might work for your family.
