No matter where you are, you can get to De La Salle. But if a car or train isn’t possible, our De La Salle buses may be a good option.
We have bus routes all around Chicago to get you De La Salle. If you’re taking the De La Salle bus, you’ll meet at a designated stop (see table of routes) and hand the bus driver a ticket (or $5) per ride. Bus tickets are also sold as a booklet of 20 ($100), which are available for purchase throughout the day at either the Meteor Shop or during lunch periods in the Commons. All bus tickets sales are final. Reimbursements are not available. The first day bus tickets are available for purchase is at our Back to School Day in August.
Buses are scheduled to arrive at De La Salle approximately 15 – 20 minutes before school begins. If traffic or weather causes a delay in arrival time, teachers are told to hold attendance and students are not considered late. In order to receive text messages if the bus is running in excess of 20 minutes late, please opt into the messaging system by sending ‘yes’ to 67587 from the cell phone you placed in the Bus Rider Sign Up Form. Please contact your service provider to let them know you wish to accept texts from this 5 digit number.
At the end of each day, buses leave 10 minutes after dismissal.
By the first week of August, completed school bus routes are available for viewing on the Transportation page of the De La Salle website: www.dls.org. Students are permitted to use any route and any stop they wish both morning and afternoon, as long as they’ve taken the bus at least once every two weeks. Make sure to submit a completed bus rider signup form by May 31st or else you might not be included in the routing process. Seats are limited!
