Private Transportation to Oak Knoll
Oak Knoll offers private bus transportation routes in various parts of Bergen and Essex counties. All bus routes charge an additional annual fee and use a centralized pick-up and drop-off location. Starting in the 2019-20 school year, Oak Knoll has also added a late bus option for the Bergen and Essex routes to accommodate athletic schedules and other after-school activities.
Oak Knoll families travel from more than 65 Northern New Jersey surrounding communities. We offer a variety of ways to get to and from our Summit, NJ campus every day.
