MPCSD Yellow School Bus
MPCSD operates school bus routes mornings and afternoons for various grade levels at Encinal School and Laurel School. Bus routes are dependent on availability. Please see our bus schedules and routes below.
**For the first six weeks of the 2016-17 school year, MPCSD has developed a temporary bus schedule. This schedule will be in effect until the opening of the NEW Laurel Upper Campus on October 17, 2016. Once the Upper Campus is open, the temporary schedule will no longer be in effect. If you are seeking transportation for the first six weeks of school please select the Temporary Bus Schedule link. If you are seeking transportation after the first six weeks of school please select the Permanete Bus Schedule Link. Bus rates have been updated to reflect these changes.

Encinal Route - Key Considerations:
- The morning ride to Encinal from Suburban Park is 30 minutes & from Lorelei Manor is 22 minutes.
- The M-F afternoon ride from Encinal to Suburban Park will be 22 minutes.
- Commuting via yellow bus to Laurel from Encinal for K-5 is available.
Laurel Route - Key Considerations:
- Laurel neighborhoods will not be able to reach Encinal on the yellow school bus. We recommend riding SamTrans, riding a bicycle with friends or inviting neighbors to share rides to Encinal.
- Laurel afternoon pick-ups take place inside of the school by the kindergarten gate. Bus riders will be escorted to the bus by a teacher.
