Eastside Catholic students come from across the region thanks to the convenient school bus transportation. Students can purchase an annual pass, a monthly pass, activity bus pass or single-use ticket, as well as morning-only and afternoon-only passes. EC has these dedicated bus routes:
Renton • Newcastle • Issaquah
Seattle • Mercer Island • Bellevue
Totem Lake • Kirkland • Redmond
Auburn • Maple Valley • Snoqualmie Ridge • Issaquah Highlands
Our home-to-school transportation program contracts with Harlow’s Bus Service. Harlow’s offers many service improvements such as newer, branded buses and a parent notification system to keep you updated if routes get delayed. Currently Harlow’s Bus Service, Inc. runs 150 school bus routes in Montana, Idaho, North Dakota, South Dakota and Washington.
