Marian Bus Service

A Marian education is worth the drive. Our students come from nearly 50 Zip codes and 80 elementary schools – you’ll meet girls from all over the Omaha metro area. 

To make transportation to Marian easy for families, no matter where they live, we will be partnering with Creighton Prep and Chief School Bus for morning pick up from 16 locations across Omaha. Participation in this program can save you from making a 20+ mile round-trip commute every morning, with the potential to save not only time but fuel costs and depreciation value on your vehicle!

Cost & Details

$250 per semester.

  • You will be able to sign up each semester for $250 per semester.
  • We will adjust the price based on the percentage (rounded down to the nearest 10%) of financial aid received compared to total tuition and fees for the 2023-24 school year. For example, a $3,000 financial aid package rounds down to 20% of total tuition and fees; thus a 20% discount will be applied to the bus pass fee.
  • All fees will be charged to your FACTS account.
  • Bus pass fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Transportation Program Guidelines

  • Creighton Prep & Marian use Chief School Bus to service these routes.
  • At drop-off sites, parents must stay with students (or leave students with another trusted adult) until the bus arrives. Students are not permitted to leave the designated drop-off zone or enter the school at private school sites. In inclement weather conditions, students should stay in their parents’ vehicles until the bus arrives.
  • Bus stop times shown represent the departure time. Buses will not leave the drop-off site prior to the time shown, but they may arrive a few minutes prior to departure.
  • Once the bus has departed the drop-off site, it will not return to pick up students who arrive late to the site. If your student misses the bus, it is your responsibility to transport your student to Prep.
  • Each route has a limit of 42 seats. If you purchase a bus pass for a route, you may use either of the bus stops on that route. You may not use bus stops on other routes. If a route has more than 42 students sign up, we will give preference to the families who live furthest away from Prep / Marian.
  • Students will be required to present their Creighton Prep / Marian student ID upon boarding the bus to verify the bus pass purchase. Until IDs are distributed after the first week of school, students will provide their name to the bus driver who has a list of those assigned to a particular route.
  • In the unlikely event of a bus “no show,” it will be your responsibility to transport your student to Prep / Marian, which is why we recommend that students stay in their parent’s vehicle until the bus arrives. In this scenario, you will be refunded a pro-rata portion of your bus pass fee.
  • After signing up, we will send you more information regarding your specific stop instructions and designated drop-off zone.
