    • Firstly, THANK YOU for your patience! We want you to know we are doing our best to make the bus routes work for everyone, which takes a lot of time and a bit of compromise. A few notes:
      • We are adding many house stops when possible.
      • We will be asking some to walk to a corner or drive to convenient stop to make the ride shorter for all.
      • We are trying to keep rides under an hour.
      • The buses have new safety features, which make it much safer for kids when exiting buses on busy roads!
