Families attending Emerson come from all over Ann Arbor, Saline, Chelsea, Dexter, Ypsilanti, South Lyon, Pinckney, and beyond. To make it easier for families to get to and from school every day, there are several transportation options available for our families.

Emerson Bus Service

A privately chartered bus service with four convenient pick-up and drop-off locations is available for Emerson School families.

Times and Locations
The bus will arrive at Emerson by 7:45am and depart for the locations listed below at 2:55pm. A parent or guardian must be present when the bus arrives at the bus stop.


      • Two-way service (to and from Emerson): $1,670 per year
      • One-way service (to or from Emerson): $955 per year

Enrollment is an annual commitment with daily service when Emerson School is in session. Families are not required to send their children on the bus every day, but fees cannot be adjusted for underutilization. A one-time payment will be processed at the beginning of the school year through participating families’ FACTS accounts.
