High School Bus Notification

Printer-friendly version

The City recently received notification from CYO (the provider of bus service from Brisbane to Terra Nova and Oceana High Schools) that it will not be able to provide service in the upcoming school year.  The City is currently researching the cost of alternative providers of bus service.  The annual cost of service was $95,000.  The City charged a portion of this to students who rode the bus and received between $12,000-$16,000 per year in ridership fees. 

City staff plans to present alternative bus options, if available, at the City Council meeting on Thursday, June 30, 2016.
