Afternoon Buckhead shuttle:

The Buckhead Shuttle is a well-organized, parent-run carpool for students who live in the Buckhead area of Atlanta. Please email Angela Bacon for more information. The Buckhead Shuttle lists the following highlights:

  • Provides afternoon carpool at no cost to families (families share driving duties)
  • Accommodates a variety of different departure times from Whitefield in the afternoons with multiple shuttle times
  • Creates a sense of community among families with several social events planned throughout the year
  • Serves students in grades K-12

Parent cars drop students off at Trinity Presbyterian Church at the corner of Howell Mill and Moores Mill Roads.


Individual Carpools:

In addition to the Buckhead bus and shuttle service, many families choose to carpool to Whitefield. There is a carpool within the Parent Portal dedicated to helping families find each other to arrange rides.
