Salesianum welcomes students from Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Maryland. Our students have a variety of ways of getting to school—including riding the bus, van, carpooling, or driving to school. For all of the detailed information about transportation to and from Salesianum, read the information in this General Transportation letter. All students attending Salesianum must complete the online Transportation form shared via onCampus, regardless of whether you plan to use a Pennsylvania public school district bus, our Salesianum van shuttle service, or do not need our transportation services. 
Pennsylvania School District Bus: For students residing in Pennsylvania, seven school districts offer free bus transportation to Salesianum: Chester-Upland, Chichester, Garnet Valley, Kennett Square, Penn-Delco, Unionville-Chadds Ford, and West Chester.

Van Service:
As a convenience for our families who live further from Salesianum, we offer van transportation along nine different routes, reaching families in each of our four states. The Salesianum van shuttle service routes are designed based on the number of confirmed riders. We cooperate with Padua and Ursuline to provide service to all three schools. If you need a route not listed, please get in touch with Admissions
We partner with Kid Ridez, a local company specializing in transportation for schools and related activities, for our van transportation. We use brand new twelve and fifteen-passenger vans and hub stop service to transport our students every morning and afternoon safely. The professional drivers are vetted, trained, and provide prompt, reliable, and safe service. We utilize CariinaTM to maintain our digital van rosters, allowing parents to track the van’s location and receive notifications when children board and exit the van. 

Salesianum subsidizes nearly two-thirds of the per-rider fee, reducing the van transportation cost to families to 
$1,600 per Salesianum student. Although it is unlikely, a van route may be canceled due to a lack of student riders. 
It is critical to sign up for van service with limited seating available as soon as you complete your child’s enrollment. Van seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.If you sign up for a van route and then change your mind, you must notify Mr. Kegelman by email at by August 15th to drop the service with no further fee.
DART Bus Service: The Delaware public transit system includes several bus routes, including stops directly in front of Salesianum. In addition to being less expensive than our van routes, DART riders have more options for arrival and departure times.
Drive/Carpool: A list of all Salesianum students in your zip code area, together with addresses, phone numbers, parent/guardian names, and year of graduation, can be obtained from Mr. Kegelman if you are interested in finding other families with whom carpools can be formed.  
If you have any additional questions about transportation, please contact Mr. Dan Kegelman '85, Transportation Coordinator.
