Thank you for taking part in the Yellow Bus Challenge for the 2016-17 School Year!
What's New in 2016-17
We've been working hard to make improvements to the Yellow Bus program for 2016-17. Here are the new features:
The Yellow Bus Program will be housed at Tiburon Town Hall with a dedicated staff member.
Marin Transit will assume operational responsibility for the program. A dedicated transportation expert will oversee day-to-day operations and will act as the conduit between the bus provider (First Student) and parents.
We are working to install GPS devices on the buses, as well as develop a "Find My Bus" tracking app with the help of Syncromatics. The app will allow parents to track buses in real time and receive push notifications about delays. Our heartfelt thanks to Belvedere Community Foundation for funding this technology.
Routes have been optimized to ensure convenience for families, fast travel times and on-time arrival and departure.
A backup bus and driver will be on location each morning to address problems with routes.
We hope you like what you see!
