The Transportation Department, located on the Upper School San Jose Campus, has a fleet of 20 buses with 12 drivers that service all student and faculty transportation needs.
Route buses transport students to and from centralized neighborhood locations to service the San Jose, Whitehurst and Bartram Campuses. Each morning and afternoon shuttle buses transport students between the San Jose and Bartram campuses giving parents a choice of where they would like to drop off and pick up their children.
Our dedicated transportation team has the experience and know-how to deliver your child safely to Bolles. With several routes and a fleet of buses, we can accommodate your transportation needs.

FIVE ROUTES TO AND FROM THE UPPER SCHOOL SAN JOSE CAMPUS
Four routes to and from JTB and Ponte Vedra Beach area, one route to and from Orange Park and Ortega.
Shuttles operate between the Upper School San Jose Campus and the Middle School Bartram Campus each school day and are offered at no cost. Pick-up and departure points are in the bus loop at the north side of Schultz Hall on the San Jose Campus, and the flagpole in front of the Main Office on the Bartram Campus. The shuttle takes 20 minutes to travel between the two campuses. For safety reasons, buses are not permitted to stop and pick up students after leaving the designated pick-up area.

There are a few important items to review for dropping off and picking up students on the Upper School San Jose Campus. For the safety of all students it is imperative that each Bartram parent who will be dropping off or picking up a student on the San Jose Campus be familiar with the appropriate drop-off and pick-up areas and procedures.
Morning Drop-off for a shuttle to the Bartram Campus (7 a.m. to 8:05 a.m.)
The student drop-off point will be along the two-lane road that runs North-South between the Upper School Schultz Hall building and the large student parking lot next to the baseball field (Labeled “DROP OFF / PICKUP LANE ONLY" on the enclosed map.) The right lane of this road is for waiting on students and the left lane is for cars to egress around the exit road. There is a sidewalk running from the drop-off area to the bus lane.
For student safety and traffic flow during drop-off and pick-up, no middle or upper school parent traffic should proceed straight beyond the turn to the two lane drop off road (Labeled “Student Drop Off and Pick Up Sign” on the map). Only drivers proceeding to the Whitehurst Campus should continue to the river road during these critical times on school days. There is no parent traffic in the parking lot enclosed by the bus loop (Labeled “Faculty/Staff Parking Only” on the map) or through either bus lanes at any time during drop-off or pick-up – see map).
After dropping off a student, all cars should proceed around the outside of parking lot C to exit. There should not be “pass through” traffic cutting through lot C.
Afternoon Pick –Up of Middle School students on the San Jose Campus (2:45 p.m. to 6 p.m.)
Upon arriving on an afternoon shuttle from the Bartram Campus, all students will exit the bus and proceed along the sidewalk on the drop-off side of the bus to the two-lane road that proceeds to the “flag pole” area. Students will not be allowed to cross the bus lane at any time; all pick-ups must occur along the Drop Off / Pickup road. Parents who arrive early to wait for their middle school child should pull forward along the curb to the flag pole area so as to prevent traffic backing up in the road leading to the Whitehurst Campus and the swimming pools. As is the case in the morning, there should be no parent traffic in Faculty Parking Lot or through either bus lanes during drop off or pick up.
As is the case in the morning, all cars should proceed around the outside of parking lot C to exit. There should not be “pass through” traffic cutting through lot C.
Thank you in advance for adhering to these guidelines in helping to keep our students safe during these congested traffic time periods.
In the interest of safety, any student who chooses to be transported in a Bolles vehicle is expected to obey the following rules at all times.
Failure to comply with any of these guidelines could result in a referral to the Dean’s Office and possible disciplinary action.
- Students are required to use seat belts when they are available
- Students are not permitted to eat or drink anything while in the vehicle
- Students are not permitted to chew gum
- Students should remain seated at all times when the vehicle is in motion
- When possible, students should place all book bags, sports bags and equipment under the seats to keep the aisles clear
- Inappropriate behavior such as throwing objects, rough housing, vandalism or shouting will not be permitted • Students are expected to show respect to the driver and classmates at all times
- For safety reasons bus drivers will not stop and pick up students except in designated pick up locations. If you are late and miss the bus, proceed to the next designated pick up location on the bus route schedule
In addition, students are reminded that they are representing The Bolles School when they are passengers in the vehicle. To this end, students are encouraged to exemplify the Bolles Values Statement in a way that will contribute positively to our community.
