Mountain View School Division is reviewing their bus routes again this year.

Donna Davidson, the superintendent/ CEO for the division, spoke with us about what they might plan to do.

“We’re looking at a reduction of another route within the 2018-19 school year.”

“We always review our bus routes for ride times and for efficiencies. We try out best to be as efficient as possible. The challenge we have, of course, is we are a very large geographical region. We have a lot of miles we cover in a day.”

Davidson continues saying,  “It’s trying our best to have children on the bus, have the safest ride as possible, and the shortest ride as possible. Sometimes it just doesn’t work; sometimes they’re a little longer then we’d like them to be.”

Any route revisions will be tested over the summer to make sure if they are feasible to meet the student transportation times,
