Mater Dei Prep has an extensive transportation plan supporting our families in Monmouth, Ocean and Middlesex Counties, in addition to receiving transportation from your township.

There are some important items to be aware of, no matter what high school your child may attend:

• Busing to Mater Dei Prep generally comes directly from your resident school district. This is the township to which you pay your taxes.
• To be eligible for student transportation (busing) or Aid-In-Lieu (definition below) by a school district, a high school student must live more than 2.5 miles and less than 20 miles from the high school.
• Aid-In-Lieu is financial assistance provided by school districts that do not provide busing and is not offered by all school districts. Presently it is set at $1,000.00 annually, and is paid to eligible families directly by the applicable school districts.
• Mater Dei Prep continues to search for innovative ways to meet the transportation needs of our students and their families. Our team will work closely with you to find a transportation solution. Many students receive transportation from a centralized location ("hub stops"). Stops currently include:
     - Metro Park Train Station in Iselin
     - Washington Road and Main Street in Sayreville
     - Route 9 and Aldrich Road in Howell/Jackson
     - Good Sports in Wall
