On Wednesday evening, the School Committee voted unanimously to reinstate late buses with funds made available in the final FY2016 State Budget. This restored funding does not allow for the district to restore late buses every day, but late buses will be running at the Middle/High School campus Monday through Thursday, and 2 to 3 days per week at each elementary school. Information about which days the buses will be running at the elementary level will be communicated further, as it is dependent on the days in which after school programs are running. Late bus routes will begin the week of September 21st and will run throughout the year until the end of May, except for the week before the winter holiday break.
These late routes are established in an attempt to provide the greatest coverage of stops across the towns as allowed by timing and distance, while still remaining consistent and predictable on a daily basis. With only two buses running per school/town, stops are much less frequent as compared to the regular day morning and afternoon runs. This is how the routes have been set in recent years, and this will remain unchanged.
The detail routes and stops for the late runs are posted on our website at www.tritonschools.org/transportation/#tab-id-5.
