The Train!NYC-to-Poughkeepsie-train

Our school is registered with the Metro-North Railroad’s Mail&Ride program. What does this mean?

Oakwood students who will be commuting daily by train to and from school will be given a special monthly student commuter pass to ride the train at a significant discount. The discount for being a student rider is 33% off of whatever the standard monthly commuter pass cost would be from your designated stop. Oakwood provides a daily bus shuttle to pick-up and drop-off our students at the Poughkeepsie train station. Students should ride the train that arrives in Poughkeepsie at 8:07am daily. If you plan on getting your child to school this way, please inquire with our admissions team.
