Bee Line Bus to or from Metro North New Haven Line
Students who commute north or south on this line can connect with #45 Bee-Line buses. The Bee-Line #45 bus is available to transport students from the New Rochelle Metro North’s train station at Huguenot and Bridge Street to the North Avenue stop which is located across the street from our school’s main entrance.

Available to Ursuline students this year, the Bee Line Bus System will be passing Ursuline during the school week at approximately 3:04 pm. This bus travels directly to the New Rochelle Metro North station and students may take advantage of this alternate transportation to downtown New Rochelle by using this Bee Line bus. Students can purchase a Metro Card at many stores for use on the bus. For more information, call 914 813-7777.

Some county bus routes (#42, 60 & 61) service the Bronx and connect with the Bee-Line #45 at North Avenue and Bridge Street in New Rochelle. Students have to purchase the Metro Cards that are accepted on these buses.
