Congestion Relief School Bus Service

The Town of Los Gatos, in partnership with local public and private schools, is exploring the feasibility of a local school bus service, with the primary goal of reducing traffic congestion near schools.

The initial concept includes neighborhood based pickup and drop-off locations, with vehicles and drivers meeting State and industry safety requirements. The earliest possible start of the service will likely be January 2019 with a few select routes.
Currently the Town of Los Gatos is taking the lead to study the feasibility of such a service that would operate independent of the schools.  The Town is working with a growing list of stakeholders including LGUSD, LGSUHSD, SR2S, Home and School Clubs, Hillbrook School, and many others.
The next major milestone of the study is a parent survey among all LGUSD and Los Gatos High School families to gather feedback on interest levels and support.  The survey will be available from January 16th to 31st next year. Every response is super valuable in determining the feasibility. Please help us get the word out and respond to the online surveys.
You can find regular updates on the progress through the study’s webpage http://www.losgatosca.gov/schoolbus and the Town’s social media platforms. If you have questions or need additional information, contact us at SchoolBus@losgatosca.gov. We look forward to hearing from you!
