SMART service offers a safe option in getting students to school on-time each day and ready to learn. Every SMART bus is equipped with cameras to ensure the safety of riders.

SMART Route 430 Main Street directly serves both the middle school and high school with trips in the morning arriving at 7:31 a.m. and 7:40 a.m. respectively with connections at SMART’s Royal Oak Transit Center (ROTC). The afternoon trip leaves the high school at 3:15 p.m. and the middle school at 3:24 p.m. The bus stops are located near the schools; just a short walk to the entrance. At the high school, students can board the bus at Lexington and Crooks; the middle school stop is at Austin and Washington.

The SMART bus is a great opportunity for young adults to learn independence by riding SMART and help to encourage transit use by our future generation. Public transit in southeastern Michigan is in transition and introducing your children to it now will help prepare them to navigate the much more comprehensive system being planned for our region in the future. The Royal Oak School system is pleased to be able to offer this opportunity to our students as we look forward to the coming school year!
