Westtown School supports students and families by offering transportation services on weekends, at school breaks and at other times, too.
Travel to and from Westtown School
Westtown School provides a shuttle each Friday afternoon to the Paoli Station (train to 30th Street Station, Philadelphia.) to connect to poits North or South. The cost for the shuttle will be split among the riders of the shuttle. The shuttle leaves school at 5:45 p.m. on Fridays, and picks up at Paoli at 5:00 p.m. on Sundays.
- Note: All shuttles will be scheduled based on demand. If there are no sign-ups for a particular bus, it will be subject to cancellation. Please plan accordingly. Signups are on Polaris (the weekend activity signup site), and must be in by noon on Friday.
Major School Vacations
- For Thanksgiving, winter, and spring breaks, the school will provide shuttles to 30th Street Station, Philadelphia (AMTRAK and BOLT bus) and the Philadelphia airport at vacation break for a fee. There is an online sign-up available one month prior to the scheduled break. Students traveling via JFK or Newark Airports should contact the Transportation Office for help arranging shuttle or limo service to those destinations. The shuttles depart school at 11:45 a.m. on the day vacations begin, and we pick up at 7:00 p.m. on the day vacations end.
DEPARTING Westtown: Please book all train travel reservations after 1:15 p.m.; domestic flights after 2:15 p.m.; international flights after 3:00 p.m.
RETURNING to Westtown: Please select trains and flights that arrive before 6:45 p.m.
Philadelphia Airport: the shuttle will stop at ZONE 8 or the area where public transportation and taxis pick up (in each terminal near Baggage Claim) at 7:00 p.m.
Unaccompanied Minors: Children under the age of 15 who are traveling alone on a plane or under 16 traveling alone on a train are unaccompanied minors and are required to be accompanied by a chaperone who must sign a waiver and wait with the child until it is time to board. While we will try to accommodate unaccompanied minors, Westtown School is unable to commit numerous chaperones for an indeterminate period of time. Listed below are local companies that will provide this service to you.
Other Transportation Information
If a student requires Westtown transportation for off-campus medical or other services, a fee will be applied to the student’s account. Medical appointments should be coordinated through the Health Center.
