Winchester Thurston School is committed to making the Lower School North Campus accessible to students who live in school districts where transportation to WT is either unavailable or inconvenient. WT offers a van service, at an additional cost, that spans the greater Pittsburgh area.
For WT families, the cost for riding a van provided by WT is $3,400 annually per student for round-trip transportation or $1,700 annually per student for one-way transportation. WT vans are operated by WT drivers. If more than nine riders register for a van, WT may elect to contract with a bus company to provide transportation services.
We welcome families seeking transportation for a student enrolled at another private school; please contact the Transportation Coordinator at 412-578-7529 for more details and seat availability.
