Yellow Bus Service and Student MetroCards

Saint Mark Catholic Academy offers yellow bus (Kindergarten – 6th Grade) or MetroCard (Kindergarten – 8th Grade) service to families. (Please note, your child may only utilize one form of transportation, not both.)

Both forms of transportation are free to families and are provided through the New York City Office of Pupil Transportation (OPT). Please note, the yellow bus is not a door-to-door service. We will provide your addresses to OPT, who will do their best to create a route that meets your needs based on your location and eligibility.

Please review the eligibility guidelines to confirm whether or not you are eligible for either yellow bus service or a MetroCard. 

If you have any questions please contact Mrs. Lori Ryan at
