Student Transportation

You can spot Dragons arriving to campus from planes, trains, and automobiles. 

Just kidding—we couldn’t resist.

Dragons get to Mid-Pen on trains, buses, cars, bikes, and their wings!  (Okay, their feet!)

2023-2024 Overview

Caltrain to Mid-Pen Transportation 

Dragons who commute to Mid-Pen using Caltrain either ride their bike or take the Menlo Park Willow Road Shuttle/Mid-Pen school van to campus. Below are options for students to get to Mid-Pen from the Menlo Park Caltrain station. We've also provided details about how to get to the Menlo Park Caltrain station after school.  

Families should review the schedule and connection options for buses and shuttles. Google Directions via Google Maps can help provide all connection options from Caltrain to Mid-Pen and vice versa.

Please check all public transportation schedules and sign up for Caltrain alerts to stay informed of any route changes.

Mid-Pen School Van Transportation 

Our school vans from Mid-Pen are utilized for the morning pick-up of students from the Menlo Park Train station. However, we are currently unable to provide transportation in the afternoon due to the use of these vans for sporting events and practice. Students who ride Caltrain home can take the Menlo Park Willow Road Shuttle to the Caltrain station. 

Students taking Caltrain from Palo Alto /University Avenue can ride the Dumbarton Express, which currently stops at Willow Road/Ivy (Stop ID #51449). For up-to-date information on Dumbarton Express routes, you can use the UMO website or app for real-time scheduled stops. Additionally, google maps is also another helpful up-to-date resource. 

Dumbarton Corridor Improvement Project

The Dumbarton Corridor Improvement Project (Project) aims to improve reliability and reduce travel times for transit service. Construction will take place from January 2023 through Spring 2023 on weekdays.
