    Starting Monday, August 30 2021, the Anchorage School District Student Transportation division will temporarily suspend bus service for designated routes in accordance with the matrix below. This action is necessary due to a shortage of bus drivers resulting from driver attrition and the impacts of COVID-19 on the Transportation staff. The Administration aspires to resume normal service as soon as possible but is presently unable to determine the duration of this program.

     

    The Administration developed a rotating system of temporary service suspensions based on specific bus routes to allow affected families to anticipate and plan for alternative means of transportation. Additionally, consideration was given to not have a single group of students and families bear the brunt of suspended bus service. Staff evaluated ridership numbers with the goal to reduce the number of impacted students and families across the District.

     

    The designated routes are inclusive of morning and afternoon bus service. As a starting point, this temporary suspension program is limited to general education busing and will not affect special education students or students attending Title 1 schools.
