Potential Yellow Bus Service Disruption: Information for Families
If your child takes a yellow bus to school, please be aware service may be disrupted this fall due to a potential bus driver strike. We know that this would be extremely disruptive to students and families, and we continue to hope a strike can be avoided. However, as it is a possibility, our priority is to do what we can to minimize disruption for our families and students, especially those that are most vulnerable, and to communicate updates to our families as we learn more.
We are preparing alternative transportation options for families whose bus routes would be affected in the event there is a strike. These options include emergency MetroCards for all impacted families, which can be provided by your child’s school, and additional options for some families, including pre-paid rideshare and transportation reimbursement (please see below for eligibility information). Prior to the start of school, we will share details and next steps for each of these options. Our top priority is to ensure that every student, including our most vulnerable, can continue attending school without interruption.
