We’re pleased to announce the district has started the process of restoring bus routes back to full service due to an increase of trained drivers starting Monday, November 1st. Though the majority of bus routes will continue using the rotating schedule of one week on and one week off, this is a small step towards all routes returning to full service.
As a result, starting Monday, October 11, 2021, all bus routes will be placed on a suspension rotation list every other week for the foreseeable future. We are hopeful that this will help alleviate some of the last minute cancellations that families and schools are dealing with in the recent weeks.
