Public schools that give Payment-In Lieu of transportation

Public schools may give rider Payment-In Lieu of transportation. A school district where the travel time from the students public assigned school to Notre Dame Schools is less than 30 minutes must provide transportation, but may elect to give rider payment-in lieu instead. Information about the required amount can be found HERE.

NDCL-Provided Transportation

As a service to our families, NDCL offers transportation for students who live in neighborhoods where busing is not provided by the local public school district. NDCL-provided transportation will serve those locations in Lake, Cuyahoga, and Geauga counties where the expressed need is greatest.

Athletics, performing arts, and clubs are an important part of any student’s high school experience. The activity van leaves NDCL at 6:30 p.m. each evening throughout the school year and is a convenient way for students who participate in after school activities to get home.
