DPT Update: Public Bus & School Bus Services

September 7, 2018

The Department of Public Transportation [DPT] has “prioritized school bus routes within the public schedule to produce a Fall 2018 School Bus Schedule”, according to officials.

A spokesperson said, “Details of this schedule are being finalized and a final version will be available to the public on the government website on Sunday, 9 September.

“The Fall 2018 School Bus schedule, combines with and complements the Public Bus Schedule, to ensure that all schools are serviced. CedarBridge Academy and the Berkeley Institute will have daily dedicated buses for departure at the end of each school day.

“Jonelle Christopher, Assistant Director of Operations at DPT is liaising with schools and the Ministry of Education to ensure that open lines of communication are established. General queries concerning school bus services should be directed to info@dpt.bm or 292-3851.

“The Ministry will continue to provide daily updates on the status of buses via the government portal and the media.

“The DPT is making steady progress with repairs to the existing bus fleet, and is working with the Ministry of Transport and Regulatory Affairs to secure needed investments to sustain the fleet into the coming years.”

    While I appreciate all that the department are doing I have to ask are CedarBridge and Berkley the only schools we have? I think all parents and children need more assurance than this brief seems to offer.

      Berkeley and Cedarbridge busses were always the first ones to be cancelled. I’m assuming that’s why they are mentioned.

    Why are there no school busses for the private schools?

    Those households pay all the taxes that the public school households pay but do not consume the resources in the public school system. They should at least get a few school bus runs out of the considerable savings the government gets by them attending private schools.

    I imagine that rush hour traffic would greatly improve as well as parents start to place their children on the school bus instead of driving them in. That benefits all.
