Getting to and from school is easy and convenient, whether students use SouthLake Christian buses, public transportation, or carpool. Our buses travel across the Charlotte metro area, servicing about 21 percent of our student population each school day.

If you have any questions, please contact the Director of Transportation, Eric Reel.

This year we have five bus routes that service the primary quadrants of the Lake Norman, Denver, and Charlotte area. Our routes can vary slightly each year, depending on family needs and are finalized in August. The below map provides a general sense of this year’s routes. Pick up and drop off times vary depending from stop-to-stop and route-to-route. Times listed are the times the bus drives away from the stop.
