  • Bus It. VTA bus options are available. Bus route and schedule information can be found at www.vta.org

  • Carpool or Drive It.  During the pandemic, walking and biking better support social distancing. Carpooling resources can be found at: www.cityofpaloalto.org/saferoutes.  If you must drive, follow your school’s drop off procedures located on your school’s website and use extra caution when driving to and from school.
