Brooklyn Excelsior Charter School provides bus transportation according to the specifications of the New York City Department of Education. Otherwise, parents are expected to provide the means for their children to get to and from school. We are also easy to reach by bus or train!
Transportation eligibility is determined on the basis of the student's grade level and the distance between the student's residence and school - students living within 1-5 miles receive priority.
K-6th: Designated school routes
7th-8th: Receive Metrocard for city bus

Drop-off and pick-up times can be hectic. But if we all work together, it can be a quick and efficient experience. If you would like to speak with one of the teachers, please pull into a parking space, stop into the office, and wait until after dismissal. Also, please remember to:
- Drive slowly and be aware -- precious children are everywhere.
- Drop children off between 7 a.m. - 7:30 a.m.
- Enter from the Quincy St. entrance only.
- Be patient with fellow drivers.
- Stay off your cell phone.
