Morning Bus Transportation

MBA provides morning bus transportation with two routes as a service and convenience for MBA, St. Cecilia/Overbrook, and Harpeth Hall families who live in Rutherford, Southern Davidson County, and Williamson County.

The buses run each morning that MBA has school, including exam weeks at the end of each semester.

In the event of inclement weather that would prevent safe bus transportation, families will be notified by phone alert system and on the MBA website.

On Fridays and times that MBA has a scheduled 10:00 AM start time, the buses will still run at the regular times shown below:
