2022-23 Pilot Bus Routes
TMS is piloting a bussing program for the 2022/23 school year. The pilot will be for Upper School students only although we may consider including Lower School siblings.
At this point, we have mapped out potential bus routes which will travel North, South, East and West. Our goal is for students to be on the bus for no more than 45-50 minutes each way.
The service will either be door-to-door or pick up/drop off from a centralized location. Please note that a door-to-door service would be at a premium price. We will confirm pricing in the spring of 2022.
We will continue to offer the intercampus shuttle bus in addition to the new routes.
We are asking all interested parents to complete the following survey so we can better understand interest in a bussing pilot, which routes are of most value and help us to plan accordingly. All of these routes are subject to some changes based on response from the survey. You can access the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5622TTN
