Transportation to Our Lady of Mercy Academy

 

Our Lady of Mercy Academy students travel from Nassau and Suffolk Counties in addition to portions of Queens County. State law mandates that districts provide transportation to OLMA if a student resides within 15 miles of our school. Please contact your district directly to receive the most up to date information. A list of buses for the 2019-2020 school year is listed below. OLMA offers alternative transportation options to support students without busing, details below.

 

 

Contact OLMA

 

If you have questions about transportation for your daughter, please contact Mrs. Leibman, Transportation Coordinator, at pleibman@olma.org or 516-921-1047 (ext. 118) Monday-Friday

8:00 AM – 12:00 PM.  Please reach out to us even if your daughter is unsure of her high school choice so that we may keep you informed, particularly on the subsidized bus program.

 

 

Subsidized Bus Program

 

OLMA currently offers a subsidized bus program from the Islip/Bayshore area, and we are providing busing from new locations based on student interest. If you do not see your public school district on the current bus list, please know that Mercy is not out of reach for your family. Contact us via the Transportation Coordinator, so that we may work together to find a solution.

 

 

Syosset Train Station Shuttle

 

OLMA provides a shuttle bus service to and from the Syosset Train Station of the Long Island Rail Road for students living beyond bus limits. The shuttle picks students up at 7:45 AM. Return service is provided at 3:00 PM dismissal and at 5:00 PM. Students bring a certified letter from OLMA to their home train station to purchase discounted monthly train passes with a student discount. Please visit your home train station to find out more about the cost from your home station to Syosset. The Syosset Train Station is on the Port Jefferson Branch of the LIRR, with changes at Hicksville, Mineola, Floral Park, Jamaica, and Woodside for those coming from other train lines. Students sign up daily on the OLMA website, so the shuttle driver knows to expect them.
