Transportation Updates

  • Anchorage School District Student Transportation division may utilize the temporary suspension bus service for designated routes in accordance with the matrix below. This action could be 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 continue normal service for as long as possible although if staffing falls below the needed number we would then implement COHORT 5 temporary suspension. 

     

    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.

     

    Thank you for your continued patience and flexibility as the ASD Transportation Department works through these new set of COVID-19 related challenges. We will keep you updated on any changes.
