Busing Update

After lots of community feedback, together with our own observations of the new bus system “in action” yesterday, combined with lengthy conversations with the WWSU Business Office & First Student Bus Service, the decision has been made to alter the new “CBMS Hub” model and to revert back to last year’s afternoon bus routes/schedules. Ultimately, this decision came down to the very core of our decision making- what’s best for our students, especially our youngest students in the WDSD.

At TBPS, as was the case last year, Buses 9 & 1 will be “late” buses and students will be supervised by two TBPS staff members until those buses arrive.  At CBMS, we will have the same “3:00 bus” runs as we have had in the past, and the 5:00 late bus will remain at a 5:00 departure from HUHS and 5:15 departure from CBMS.


Although this may sound like a simple change to make,  it actually involves significant alterations to both the bus schedules and to the 2015-16 daily schedules at both TBPS & CBMS. We will rework those schedules in the next two days and the revised system will begin with the afternoon bus run on Monday, August 31st.  For the rest of this week, we offer our sincere apologies in advance for the much, much less than ideal system.  We have made a few minor tweaks which should help a bit, but the system with CBMS as the hub will still equate to congestion for the remaining days this week.  Your patience and understanding is most appreciated.  Revised bus schedules will be posted by the end of this week on the WWSU, CBMS, and TBPS websites.


Beginning Monday, August 31, dismissal will be as follows:
  • CBMS @ 2:30PM
  • TBPS @ 2:45PM

At TBPS, as was the case last year, Buses 9 & 1 will be “late” buses and students will be supervised by two TBPS staff members until those buses arrive.
