Transportation Program

Sign Up Now for Fall 2019—Early Bird Pricing and Perks Through June 15

For more than 35 years, Windward has been an appreciative neighbor to the close-knit Mar Vista community of Los Angeles. We are proud to partner with the residents in improving our surroundings and enhancing our outreach. As part of our ongoing commitment to reduce our carbon footprint, and in conjunction with the highly reputable firm of Hirsch/Green Transportation Consulting, Inc., we’ve upgraded our bus program for the 2019/20 academic year.
The upgraded program includes four bus routes designed to service our families. Each route includes a morning pick-up (arriving 10 minutes before class) and afternoon drop-off (departing campus at 3:45 p.m.). All buses will have:
  • Ample seating;
  • Heat and air conditioning;
  • Wi-Fi; and
  • Seat belts.
Windward uses Tumbleweed Transportation for our bus program. The school buses used for the program are maintained in excellent condition, and each bus holds a Certificate of Inspection issued by the California Highway Patrol. All buses have seat belts, two-way radios, and safety equipment. All drivers hold California School Bus Certificates and have first aid and CPR training. Drivers are required to do maintenance and safety inspections each morning to ensure the safety of all passengers.
