City busing for school students starts Nov. 29

By Staff | Nov 19, 2010

On Monday, November 29, as a service to school patrons, the Rugby Public School District will begin city busing (mornings only) for the winter months, the same as it has done in past years.

The school district offers this service, free of charge, to its in-town students during the winter months. The city bus service will run until approximately the end of March, depending upon spring weather conditions.

Students are asked to dress warmly for their morning bus rides. Depending upon weather, number of riders, delays on the rural routes, etc., students may find themselves waiting at the stops for extended periods of time during cold weather.

At a minimum, students need warm caps, gloves, boots, scarves and a warm coat.

Riders are expected to treat others on the bus courteously and to ride three to a seat. Students getting on the city bus should walk to the rear of the bus, filling in at the back so later riders may get on the bus without walking between filled seats.

Weather-related school announcements are made over KZZJ radio. Pickup sites and times will vary according to usage during the year. If a bus is not available on certain days, announcements will be made over KZZJ radio.

The driver for the city route is Nathan Steen.

Maps of the city routes will be posted at all three schools to help students determine the best place for them to board each morning.

Route and stop locations and times are subject to change on a daily basis, subject to weather, street conditions, number of riders, etc.

The city bus will make two morning runs on the following schedule. Route, stop locations, and times may be adjusted based on ridership.
