Fort Totten Metro Shuttle

School buses will pick up students from the Fort Totten Metro in a continuous shuttle service between 7:15 am and 7:40 am. The cost for this shuttle is $150/year.

If you do not need the Fort Totten Metro morning shuttle service daily, but would prefer to use it occasionally, you may buy a 5-ride ticket for $10 in the main office and present the ticket to the driver.

St. Anselm’s buses leave from the School at 3:30 pm, 4:45 pm, and 6:00 pm every day we have a full day, and will run on a modified schedule on half days.  You do not need to register for the afternoon shuttle.  Beginning this year, there will be no charge for the afternoon shuttles.

Beginning August 26, 2021, the School will offer three separate long-run shuttles: two from NoVA and one from NW DC.

All shuttles start on August 26, 2021, and they run every day School is in session. On days when School opening is delayed, the shuttle times will be also delayed by two hours.

Because of the changing restrictions related to the CoVid pandemic, the School may need to reassess and modify the service during the year.

Physical distancing rules will follow local laws and regulations. At this time, travelers on busses are not required to maintain physical distance. However, our students must wear a mask and should attempt to maintain as much distance as possible while on the shuttles
