Padua Academy offers a variety of transportation opportunities through several bus and shuttle systems in Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.

Delaware

One-way and two-way bus transportation options are available in the following areas: Hockessin, Newark, Bear, Middletown, Odessa, and Dover. Please be advised that price rates and schedules may vary slightly from year to year based on the needs of the students riding the bus.

Parents may decide that public transportation is the right fit. Schedules and ticket information are available online at www.dartfirststate.com.

New Jersey

Families from New Jersey may choose to transport their students to and/or from Padua by buses contracted with Salesianum through the Lehanes Bus Company. One-way and two-way bus transportation options are available.

Pennsylvania

West Chester Shuttle: Padua offers a shuttle service for students from the West Chester area. The pick-up and drop-off stop is Painter’s Crossing Shopping Complex. Padua does its best to coordinate with the Salesianum pick-up and drop-off times.

Pennsylvania Buses: Each Pennsylvania school district within ten (10) miles of Padua provides transportation for its residents to and from school each day. When a school district is not in session for any reason other than bad weather, Padua students are responsible for their own transportation to and from school.

Padua provides each school district with a list of students interested in bus transportation based on information provided from parents on the Transportation Form. The Pennsylvania school districts then contact the families using their services when schedules and routes are assigned. Listed below are the school districts that provide transportation to Padua:
  • Chichester School District
  • Garnet Valley School District
  • Kennett Consolidated School District
  • Penn-Delco School District 
  • Unionville School District
