OUSD and AC Transit are pleased to confirm for OUSD families and staff that the transportation services to Montera Middle School, Skyline High School and Community Day School will be extended through June 2019. OUSD Board Director Nina Senn says, “This extension gives our families assurance of both agencies’ commitment to support their transportation needs and to find solutions together. Finding a longer term solution will take time and an extension into 2019 gives us breathing room to do so. We are very grateful for AC Transit’s and our state legislators, Senator Nancy Skinner, Assemblymembers Rob Bonta and Tony Thurmond's thought partnership and collaboration as we work through this process.”
AC Transit Board President Elsa Ortiz added, "AC Transit is proud of our decades-long partnership with OUSD and honored to know that our service will remain a passport for East Bay students. In collaboration with OUSD, we devoted the past year to developing cost savings that minimized changes to 'school-tripper' bus lines, while working with stakeholders on the financial commitments that now protect supplementary bus service through the close of next school year."
