CESJDS offers an extensive school bus transportation program allowing us to meet the needs of our families from neighborhoods in Maryland and Washington, DC. Our bus routes currently serve the following communities: Kemp Mill and Silver Spring, Rockville, Chevy Chase, Bethesda, and Washington, DC. In an effort to increase transportation coverage, we are offer group bus stops. Shay HaLevi, our Security and Transportation Manager works with new families to accommodate new stop requests when possible. Contact to learn if there is a bus stop near you.

The School relies on the commitment of families to the transportation program in contracting for school bus service. If you cancel bus service after the first two weeks of the school year, you will be obligated for the full amount of the transportation fee for the school year. A $250 cancellation fee will be charged to those who cancel service during the first two weeks of the school year.

Before finalizing your registration, parents must review the Transportation Agreement, and parents and students must review the School Bus Behavior Contract. Students will not be permitted to ride the bus if the family’s transportation registration is incomplete. Questions? Call Shay HaLevi at 301-692-4862 or e-mail at

*Please note that MD State Law prohibits Gurim students from riding the school bus. If you have a student in Gurim, they will not be eligible for transportation services.
