Transportation

Students are transported to Rutgers Prep in a variety of ways and from many towns. Some of the ways our students commute are:

Parental drop off

Many parents choose to drive their children to school.

Licensed student drivers

Students who are old enough to do so may drive their own cars.

Parent carpooling

Rutgers Preparatory School welcomes families from at least five counties and scores of zip codes in New Jersey. We are happy to help make it easier getting to and from school by assisting parents in finding nearby families who are also interested in carpooling.

Community provided transportation

Somerset/Franklin Township is expected to continue to provide transportation for its residents directly to Rutgers Prep at no cost to families living there (state law requires that a child must be at least 5 years of age to take part in transportation provided by school districts).

Independently contracted transportation

Occasionally, parents will use a private company to transport their children from districts that do not bus to Rutgers Prep. Although the school is unable to make transportation arrangements directly with private companies, we will happily direct you to companies that could help.

  • RideAlong - RideAlong is a safe, reliable and affordable transportation alternative started by busy parents for families. At a fraction of the cost of other options, RideAlong provides reliability, peace of mind, and a personal connection that no other service can guarantee. Our focus on community, advance scheduling and carpooling helps us keep rides affordable.

    As a RideAlong family, you have the same driver every day, whom you know and trust. You always know where your children are, who the other passengers are, and no one is ever left alone. RideAlong drivers aren’t just thoroughly and professionally vetted - they’re dedicated community members who love helping others. Families have real-time contact with them and receive stop-by-stop notifications. When schedule changes or other difficulties pop up, you communicate directly with your driver. We make sure your child is delivered promptly and is always safe. Our drivers are part of our family. We hope they’ll become part of yours.” Please contact RideAlong at: www.ridealongnow.com

    There will be a webinar on September 14th for families interested in learning more about RideAlong. A link to this webinar can be found below:
