Bus Route Changes
Dear Parents and Guardians,
We would like to thank our parents and community for your patience and most importantly your input in addressing the changes that were made to several of our bus routes yesterday.  Throughout the day, we have consulted with parents, Tiburon Police Department, and First Student Transportation in order to make the changes listed below which will take effect on Monday, August 24, 2015.  The only way this could be accomplished was to eliminate a few stops, and make other minor changes as noted below. Please look carefully to see if your stop has been eliminated, so you can choose the next nearest stop.  We hope to have the revised schedules posted on the Yellow Bus Challenge website by the end of next week.  See here for more details.

Reed Elementary School
Purple AM Route - The following stops will become Red AM stops:
     9 - Mercury Ave at Apollo Rd (West end) will become Red, approximate pick up  
     time 8:08 a.m.
10 - Mercury Ave at Apollo Rd (East end) will become Red, approximate pick up time at 8:08 a.m.
The driver knows to pick up students at this stop, so you will not need a new buss pass for the morning indicating Red instead of Purple route.
Red PM Route - The following stops have been eliminated:
5 - Paradise Dr at Hillcrest Rd
6 -Paradise Dr at Mateo Dr
8 - Paradise Dr at Taylor Rd
Red PM Route - Altered drop off
9 - Paradise Dr at Robin Dr will become a 'red light stop' - this means the bus will stop at the Transit Bus stop and the driver will turn on the red lights, exit the bus, and safely cross the students.
Bel Aire School
 
Pink 2 AM Route - The pickup times have been modified. The new pickup times are as follows:
7:15 AM - Stop 1 - Parking lot at Paradise Dr and Mar West St
7:17 AM - Stop 2 - Mar West St at Pedestrian Crossing
7:23 AM - Stop 3 - Mar West St at Mariner Way
7:25 AM - Stop 4 - Tiburon Blvd at Gilmartin Dr
7:27 AM - Stop 5 - Tiburon Blvd at Avenida Mira Flores
7:35 AM - Stop 6 - Bel Aire School
 
Pink PM Route -  Students will be placed on Pink 1 and Pink 2 in the afternoon, to be consistent with the morning and to reduce the return trip times.
 
Pink PM 2 Route - Additional stop - Mariner Way at Mar West approximately 3:01 PM
 
Brown PM Route - The followings stops have been eliminated:
3 - Paradise Dr at Hillcrest Rd
4 -Paradise Dr at Mateo Dr
6 - Paradise Dr at Taylor Rd
Brown PM Route - Altered drop off
Stop 7 - Paradise Dr at Robin Dr will become a 'red light stop' - this means the bus will stop at the Transit Bus stop and the driver will turn on the red lights, exit the bus, and safely cross the students.
Del Mar School
 
Lime AM Route - There are two Lime buses
Lime I - picks up at the following Stops: 1 - 8 and 10 - 14
Lime 2 - picks up Stop 9 only (Antilles Way at Martinique Ave)
 
Lime PM Route - The following stops have been eliminated:
5 - Paradise Dr at Hillcrest Rd
6 -Paradise Dr at Mateo Dr
8 - Paradise Dr at Taylor Rd
Lime PM Route - Altered drop off
Stop 9 Paradise Dr at Robin Dr will become a 'red light stop' - this means the bus will stop at the Transit Bus stop and the driver will turn on the red lights, exit the bus, and safely cross the students.
General Bus Tips:
In order to maintain an on-time schedule, please make sure students are at the bus stop approximately 10 minutes prior to the scheduled pick up time in the morning.
Some buses, especially at the beginning of the year, take about 15 minutes to load at the end of the school day. We ensure students are boarding the correct bus, and make sure students are not left behind. This can delay the time the bus will arrive at the stop to drop off students in the afternoon. We have noticed some parents have written their child's stop on the back of their pass in marker which helps the driver if a student does not know their stop.
Thank you as we continue to work together to make the Yellow Bus Challenge 2.0 a huge success!
Respectfully,

Nancy Lynch, Ed.D.
Superintendent
