Morning Bus Service

We are pleased to announce that USN will continue to offer convenience and help lessen our carbon footprint by providing bus service to school each morning, beginning Tuesday, August 16th.

*Please note for Late Start Days: Buses run exactly 2 hours behind on a typical late start day.
For example, if your bus typically departs the pick up lot at 7:10am, it would depart at 9:10am.
We will have seven different pick-up points this year, along four different routes, just as we did last year.   
  • Hillsboro route: The pickup point will be the Hillsboro Church of Christ at 5800 Hillsboro Road. The bus will arrive by 7:10 a.m. and depart promptly at 7:15 a.m. for USN.
  • Harding route: The first pickup will be at the Belle Meade Plaza at the Office Depot parking lot on the corner of Harding and Woodmont, 4544 Harding Pike. It will depart at 7:10 a.m. and travel to Elmington Park to make a second pick-up  in the Bowling Ave. side parking lot by 7:15 a.m. At 7:20 a.m., it will depart for USN.
  • I-65S route: The first pickup will be at the Brentwood Civitan Park at 8011 Concord Road. It will leave this point at 7 a.m. sharp and travel to the 100 Oaks Staples parking lot at 100 Powell Place by 7:15 a.m. It will depart at 7:20 a.m. for USN.
  • East Nashville route: The first pickup will be at the Inglewood Dollar Tree (right across from Kroger). It will leave this point at 7 a.m. sharp, and travel to East Park parking lot by 7:15 a.m. It will leave East Park promptly at 7:20 a.m. bound for USN.
The cost is $300 for the year, from August to May. Families will be billed monthly in arrears.
