Some routes , and now changes have been announced for six routes affecting and bus riders.
One change is that middle and high school students will ride together in the morning, but not in the afternoon. That's because many Decatur High students have after-school activities.
All the routes were changed because of low ridership and efficiency. Here's the message sent home to parents from schools Transportation Director Simonia Elder.
We have observed and assessed our bus routines for 6th through 12th grade students for the first month of school. We have also considered feedback from our families and community. We will make changes to several of our bus routes on September 18, 2012.
There are multiple reasons that we may need to make a change to a bus route: overcrowding, low ridership, trip efficiency, traffic concerns or driver absences. Decatur HS and Renfroe MS students will ride together in the morning. Decatur HS and Renfroe MS students will ride separately in the afternoon because of low ridership and activities at Decatur HS.
Listed below are the bus routes that will be changed on Tuesday, September 18, 2012, including the reason for doing so.
