Student Life


Providence High School wants to be proactive in making sure that our students and their families have transportation options. School begins promptly at 8:00am each morning, with a warning bell at 7:55am. We require our students to be in their first class, seated and ready to go, by that 8:00am bell. Many families drop their children off and pick them up at Providence High School on a daily basis. But, some families’ morning and afternoon schedules make this difficult to do. We want to try to help make it easier for our students to arrive on time, ready to start class. To that end, we want to make the following transportation options known to you.

A Quick Note on School-Provided Transportation:
In the 2017 school year, Providence surveyed parents at all grade levels regarding transportation options. Unfortunately, there was not enough parent interest to create a sustainable program. Therefore, Providence will not be able to provide bus or vanpool service. 

Public Transportation

For some families, public transportation is a good option. There are stops very close to PHS’ campus—we are located adjacent to both Disney Studios and Providence St. Joseph Medical Center. Both are major destinations for working people. The City of Burbank, the MTA and other transportation authorities have created infrastructure and developed routes to facilitate those workers’ travels. Your child can benefit from this already available transportation. If you choose this option, you can plan your child’s trip to and from PHS utilizing the MTA’s trip planner at Metro Trip Planner. There you can specify whether you wish to utilize bus service exclusively, or a combination of bus and light rail. Student fares are as low as $24 for a 30-day period. You can visit Metro Ride Fares for more information. To apply for reduced student fares, you can visit Metro's Reduced Student Fares These sites are very user-friendly.


Some families may wish to “team up” and rideshare to and/or from Providence instead of utilizing public transport. To facilitate ridesharing opportunities as much as possible, Providence maps out all Providence families’ addresses in order to determine families’ proximity to each other and has devised a procedure to assist families in making contact with one another. Once a request form is submitted, Providence will send a BCC email request to all families within an approximate three-mile radius of the requesting family’s home address. Solutions cannot always be guaranteed, but we at Providence High School will do our very best to provide some sort of resolution to transportation concerns.

Here’s how it works:

Please note: Providence High School cannot take responsibility for providing any day-to-day school-related transportation—except where it is explicitly included within the context of a specific co-curricular or extracurricular program or pursuit. Moreover, Providence High School is unable to guarantee outcomes for, and cannot micromanage transportation arrangements between and among, families beyond the establishment of an initial plan.
