Garden City SEPTA would like to welcome you to the Family. Our Family Mentor Program connects parents who are going through the CPSE to CSE transition with a parent who has already gone through the process. Your SEPTA mentor will help, should you have questions or concerns about this transition. We feel that having a parent in the district to help guide our new parents will make the transition that much smoother. Remember, “It takes a village to raise a child.”


If you have any questions or wish to be connected to another parent, please email us at


Lastly, please be sure to join GCSEPTA to stay on top of new information and participate in all the great speakers and actives we have planned this year!
