Transportation

Viewpoint offers an extensive network of morning, afternoon, and evening bus routes to help students get to and from school from wherever they live, and we encourage everyone to consider riding the bus!

Local Service
Calabasas, Hidden Hills, and Woodland Hills.
Multiple pick-up locations within our Local Service area affords our nearby families a convenient way to avoid experiencing and adding to the congestion that sometimes occurs during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up.
 
Regional Service
Our current regional bus routes serve the following communities and support the fact that Viewpoint attracts students from near and far:
 
Agoura Hills
Arleta
Bel Air
Beverly Hills
Canoga Park
Encino
Malibu
Oak Park/North Ranch
Pacific Palisades
Porter Ranch
Santa Clarita
Sherman Oaks
Studio City
Sylmar
Tarzana
Thousand Oaks
Westlake Village
 
Arrival and Departure Times
Morning routes aim to deliver students to campus 10-15 minutes prior to the start of school.  Afternoon routes generally leave by 3:30 p.m. Late buses are available for Middle and Upper School students who have athletics practices, games, rehearsals, or other after-school activities. 
 
Detailed Information Is Available in June
Detailed information about routes and bus stop locations is typically made available in May or June, along with ridership applications. Pricing for 2021-22 is expected to remain below $9.50 each way per day when round trip service for the full year is purchased. Substantial discounts are available for families with multiple bus-riding children, and for recipients of financial aid. One-way, semester-at-a-time and single ride options are available, though at a higher rate. Service may be limited by bus capacity, and rider applications are accepted only so long as space is available on the route.
 
If you have questions before or after the detailed information comes out, you are welcome to contact Nicki Thompson, Viewpoint’s Director of Transportation at nicki.thompson@viewpoint.org or 818‐591‐6548. 
 
A NOTE ABOUT VIEWPOINT'S COVID RESPONSE
 
Limited bus service has been restored for the 2020-21 school year as students have been allowed to return to campus for in-person instruction. Vehicle capacity has been reduced to allow for physical distancing, seats are assigned, masks must be worn at all times by all passengers (as well as by the driver), and riders are required to show evidence they satisfactorily completed a daily health check prior to boarding in the morning.
