Summary of issues presented


Student safety

Student safety


Different age of riders

Some of the non-public schools are K-12 Issues

Others are K-8

Not unusual to have students from various grade levels riding together

Different age of riders


Early pick up times

Earliest pick up times are approximately 6:45 am Issues

Transfer time is approximately 7:20 am

Early pick up times


Length of runs

Length of Runs


Not getting to school on time

ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE hour

Not getting to school on time


Lengthy layover times

2 buses have been identified as arriving at the afternoon transfer point approximately 15 minutes before other buses

Lengthy Layover times


Potential resolutions
Potential resolutions transfer point approximately 15 minutes before other buses


Potential changes to am runs

  • Option #1 – Move Transfer Point to LPE transfer point approximately 15 minutes before other buses

    • Pros: Improves likelihood of on time arrival at PJP and VFB – approximately 5 minutes closer

    • Cons: None Noted

Potential changes to AM Runs


Potential changes to am runs1

  • Option #2 – Provide Transportation Hubs transfer point approximately 15 minutes before other buses

    • Alternate collection points

      • Proposed

        • Laura and Farmington

        • High and Pleasantview

        • Hilltop

    • Pros: Provides an option for families in those areas to drop their children at these locations at a later time

    • Cons: Will the hubs be used?

Potential changes to AM Runs


Potential changes to am runs2

  • Option #3 – Provide a Two Tier Transfer System transfer point approximately 15 minutes before other buses

    • Early transfer – 7:15 (PJP, BTC, CCS Sec, VFB, HC, Berks and IC)

    • Late transfer – 7:35 (SF, WM, CCS El, Wynd, SA)

    • Pros: Get to school on time

      Later pick up for some students

      Students take same bus to school

    • Cons: Students must learn new transfer system Drivers must learn new routes

      Another month of transition

Potential changes to AM Runs


Potential changes to pm runs

  • Option #1 – Provide Transportation Hubs transfer point approximately 15 minutes before other buses

    • Alternate drop off points

      • Proposed

        • Laura and Farmington

        • High and Pleasantview

        • Hilltop

    • Pros: Provides an option to drop off student at the hub prior to completing the transfer cycle

    • Cons: Will the hubs be used?

Potential changes to pM Runs


Potential changes to pm runs1

  • Option #2 – Provide a Two Tier Transfer System transfer point approximately 15 minutes before other buses

    • Early transfer – 3:15 (PJP, BTC, WM, SA)

    • Late transfer – 3:35 (SF, CCS, Wynd, Berks, IC)

    • Pros: Eliminates layover for early arrivals

      Less students and fewer buses at transfer

    • Cons: Students must learn new transfer system Another month of transition

Potential changes to pM Runs


Potential changes to pm runs2

Potential changes to pM Runs


Recommendations

Relocate AM Transfer Point to LPE Point

Provide Transportation Hubs in AM to provide options to parents

Implement the two tier transfer system in the afternoon to minimize layover time and get students home promptly

Study the two tier transfer system for the morning and consider implementing next year
