Our students hail from dozens of Chicago-land zip codes. Some of our students are close enough to walk, skate board, or bike to school, while others drive or meet their friends on Metra trains where they are picked up by the Wolcott shuttle.


Wolcott contracts with a private bus company to provide a daily morning and afternoon bus service. The bus stops at four stations to pick up students in the morning. In the afternoon, the bus returns to each station at dismissal (3:35 p.m.) and again after Academic Coaching (4:59 p.m.). The scheduled stops are:

• Van Buren Station
• Ogilvie Station

• Union Station

• LaSalle Station


Wolcott is also accessible via CTA bus. The bus stops in the closest proximity to Wolcott are:

• #50 Damen bus route stopping at Damen and Grand.

• #45 Grand bus route stopping at Grand and Wolcott

• #66 Chicago bus route stopping at Chicago and Wolcott

All Wolcott students receive a Ventra card which entitles them to discounted fares on the CTA.


Many families have formed carpools. To locate families who live near you, please consult the Wolcott directory or reach out the Niki Aquino at naquino@wolcottschool.org.


A number of students travel to school by bike. Bikes can be safely locked directly outside of school during the school day.
