The Montessori Morning Star


The Montessori Morning Star is a Norte! Bike Train connecting the Oak Park neighborhood to TCAPS Montessori School for Traverse City Bikes To School Day.

The Morning Star departs from its Station at the corner of Webster & Railroad on the TART at 7:45.

Riders of The Morning Star can expect one of the most amazing Bike To School routes ever. A lovely cruise on the TART trail, over the Boardman Lake bridge, up Oryana hill, down Lake to 12th to school.

Roughly a 3km ride.


The Morning Star will return to its Station at 4:00.

A N!YC volunteer will lead The Morning Star both to and from school. Parents are responsible for getting their child to the Morning Star Station on time as well as picking them up there after school.

Our trains pride themselves on being punctual. We won’t be late for school therefore The Morning Star can not wait for anyone.

Bike To School Fridays rules apply:

Helmets required.
Safe riding mandatory.
Smiles and High Fives encouraged.
