Town Launching School Bus Pilot in January 2019

With a great level of enthusiasm, the Town Council gave a green light to the school bus pilot service at the meeting on June 5. The Council also committed over $80,000 of the General Funds in Fiscal Year 2018-19 to support this pilot.

The Town will release a draft service plan that includes up to four routes with bus stop locations and schedule. The two routes that receive the highest numbers of sign ups would be selected for the pilot. The pilot is very small with the hope that the buses will be full to maximize the congestion relief benefit. Only two routes will be available so seats on the buses are limited. Sign-ups will be on a first-come first-served basis. Parents will be able to reserve a seat by putting down a deposit.

When will the pilot start?
January 5, 2019

How much?
$180 for a pass for January through June 2019 (one half of the school year)
$350 for an annual pass August 2019 through June 2020

When can people sign up?
The tentative schedule is August 1 – 20, 2018
Please keep an eye out for updates in July.
