 We strongly encourage you to read our entire FAQs & Bus Rules to fully understand how the PCHS School Bus Program operates. 

 

PCHS School Bus Scholarships (Financial Aid):

 

The PCHS School Bus Scholarship Application submittal time period has passed. The PCHS School Bus Program scholarship request system (FAST Aid) is no longer accepting requests/applications for 2018-19 or 2019-20, and all PCHS School Bus Scholarship dollars are already accounted for.

1. Creating and Utilizing Carpooling/Rideshare with people in your area: 2. Take Public Transportation via the Train and/or the Big Blue Bus:
3. Take the PCHS School Bus:
 2019-20 Cost= $0/year  2019-20 Cost= $500/year 2019-20 Cost= $2,250/year 
While Public Transportation and School Bus options still exist (see details below), the most cost-effective option for the money may be to organize a local car-pooling/ride-share scenario to get to/from PCHS each day. Transportation to/from PCHS via Los Angeles Public Transportation on any of the LA Metro trains that connect into the Metro Expo Line terminating in Santa Monica at the Downtown Santa Monica (Pier & Esplanade) Station; and then connecting to the Santa Monica Big Blue Bus that has stops at PCHS.
Transportation to/from PCHS in a traditional school bus via ATS This is a 10-month program commitment. As in previous school years, students are picked up and dropped off at a variety of other school locations around the LA area.

Each school day, beginning February 25th2019, students can ride the new Line 9 – Pali High Express with the following schedule:

·        Mornings: Depart 4th Street & Colorado Avenue at 7:13am, and arrive at Pali at ~7:37am

·        Afternoons: Depart Sunset Blvd. & El Medio Ave, (on PCHS side) at 2:23 pm, and arrive at the Expo Line at ~2:49 pm

Compared to the regular/local Line 9 route/stops the Line 9 – Pali High Express via PCH & Sunset will save ~20 minutes each way for students connecting at the Expo Line’s 4th & Colorado station.

Also, MTA Metro Bus recently added an additional bus (2nd Bus) after the 2:06 pm PCHS dismissal to Line 602 each school day.  Ride it from the Sunset & Temescal Canyon stop at 2:14 pm or 2:16 pm!
