2nd Semester Transportation Update

At this time we are reviewing our transportation services and unable to sell a bus pass for next semester. Please check back in early January to see what options are available.
If you have any questions, please contact transportation@ocsarts.net.

Orange County School of the Arts (OCSA) currently serves nearly 2,300 students in grades 7 through 12 from more than 120 cities throughout Southern California. The school provides a variety of transportation services to students and parents to assist in their daily commute to school. On this page, you will find information about parent carpool, student parking, the bus and train system, and more.

Pick-Up and Drop-off maps

Please refer to the campus pick-up and drop-off maps ahead of dropping your student off at school. 

OCSA Student Parking

All students who drive a car to school must obtain a Parking Permit and register their car(s) with the school. To read our parking policy and to purchase a student parking permit, click the button below. 


A Parent Directory is available through your Aeries account for families searching for carpool contacts. To find this Directory, log into your Aeries account, then on the home page under RESOURCES, click on PARENT DIRECTORY.

The authorizations for this directory were part of online registration data confirmation. To update your authorization settings, please log into your Aeries parent portal (http://familysis.ocsarts.net) and go to STUDENT INFO, then DATA CONFIRMATION. This directory will be updated at the end of each grading period. This information is for connecting with other OCSA parents for OCSA-related communication and is not to be used for any other purposes.


At OCSA, creating a community is a priority and easing transportation barriers for our current and future families is a part of that process. We have created a platform for families to connect and discuss all things transportation. Using this free platform, families can discover and connect with other families that live nearby for carpooling, van pools, finding a buddy to ride on the train with, and more.

Getting started on this page is easy, click on the link below to be directed to the home page. Next, you will need to answer the three screening questions in order to join the group. Once approved by OCSA admin, you will be able to create your own posts or comment on others! Posts will need to be approved by OCSA admin before they appear on the page. Please make sure to not post your exact address, phone number or email. If you would like to give out your information to someone, please do so in a private message.
