The bus leaves school at 6:45 p.m. for return service to Back Bay Station. There is no evening stop in Beacon Hill. After the first few weeks of school, girls will be required to show the driver a special decal on their school ID to be allowed to ride the bus. Girls must be up-to-date with their payment for the bus service to receive the required decal. It is our hope that this bus service will allow each student to participate in after-school sports, theater, music, dance, and other extracurricular activities. For more information, contact the Business Office at (617) 244-4246.
If NCDS has a delayed start due to weather, the Boston Bus will depart from the Beacon Hill and Back Bay stops 15 minutes later than the regularly scheduled time. This allows students a few minutes extra to get to the bus.
NCDS is pleased to announce the launch of a new round trip bus route between the Metrowest region and NCDS, with stops in Needham and Wellesley. Pickup and departure locations and times are listed below. The per-rider fee for a round-trip route is $4,000. The per-rider fee for a one-way trip is $2,000. Riders receiving tuition assistance may qualify for a prorated fee.
The Bus and Activity Fees will be billed with the other Tuition Invoice Charges. They will be paid using Autopay. If you signed up for either the 2-Pay or a 10-Pay plan, they will be split into two payments, one due at your first billing cycle and the other in December.
Please note that these routes and times are subject to change based on ridership commitments. We will notify you by June 1st if there are any changes.

MBTA Student CharlieCards are available through the school. Girls interested in using a student CharlieCard will receive a Student Value Charlie Card, a stored value card that only charges the student fare each time it is used. This is the only type of card distributed through the school. Students will load the card themselves with funds at CharlieCard machines at MBTA stations. If during any month a student loads the card with $30, that card will allow the student to use the card for unlimited trips for that particular month. Therefore, if you would like your card to become an unlimited ride card for a particular month, do not load that card until the first day of that month. Contact Martha Haddad at x4713 with questions.
