Update on High School Bus

Printer-friendly version

On February 15, 2017 representatives of the Jefferson Union High School District (JUHSD) Board of Trustees and Superintendent met with a two Brisbane Council Members and staff to discuss the mounting difficulties the City is facing in providing daily bus service to and from Pacifica.  As the City has already reported, our current provider will not be providing service next school year.  There was also a discussion concerning phasing out the bus service over a period of time since finding contractors is getting more and more difficult.  The JUHSD Board of Trustees committed to discussing this issue at a future board meeting.  The discussion will include any and all options that may be available including, but not limited to; the City of Brisbane phasing out contracting for the bus service over the next year or so (if a vendor can even be contracted), the JUHSD contracting bus service with financial support from the City of Brisbane, the JUHSD looking into student transportation as a whole, and working together as agencies to support Brisbane students in selecting one of the Daly City schools to attend instead of the Pacifica schools.
