Bus Program

Bus service helps reduce traffic congestion from individual cars and reduces our carbon impact on the environment. The Northwest School offers morning and afternoon bus service for families in the greater Seattle area through five different routes.


  • Northwest: Greenwood, Ballard, Magnolia, Interbay, and Queen Anne
  • Northeast: University District, Wedgewood, and Northgate
  • West: West Seattle
  • Southeast: Renton northward (via Rainier/Renton Ave)
  • East: Kirkland, Bellevue, Mercer Island

The cost of bus service is $450 per trimester for one-way routes and $900 per trimester for both ways. The Northwest Experience Fund covers 100% of this expense for families receiving financial aid.
