ONLINE EXCLUSIVE: In-city bus routes begin Monday

By Staff | Nov 28, 2019

On Monday, December 2, as a service to school patrons, the Rugby Public School District will begin City Bussing (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.

*Reminder pickup times may be adjusted slightly on Wednesday mornings due to weekly school late start.*

Students must 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 should have 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 Radio Station KZZJ. 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 Radio Station KZZJ.

The driver for the City Route will be 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


Parents of children who ride school buses are reminded that winter weather in North Dakota can create dangerous situations for those students that are unprepared.

The Rugby Public Schools would like to remind parents that students riding buses should be properly clothed for extreme winter conditions, wearing winter coats, hats, gloves, and proper footwear. Parents should check with students of all ages before they leave home to board a rural route or activity bus to be sure that they are prepared for the extreme weather potential that exists every day during this time of year.
