After-School Buses to Roll Sept. 8

With a federal reprieve until next year, the Westport Transit District’s (WTD) after-school buses will roll again beginning Monday, Sept. 8, operating essentially the same routes as last year, First Selectman Jim Marpe announced today.

The municipal bus service for students—which the town has operated for more than 30 years and was in jeopardy of being discontinued for being noncompliant with federal law—was recently granted an exemption until Jan. 1, at which time the town must have a private bus service contracted to shuttle the students.

With the exemption granted, Marpe said the buses will pick up students at schools, taking them to various after-school programs, as well as to the Westport Weston Family Y, the Westport Library, Toquet Hall and other downtown destinations.

The after-school service was in jeopardy because the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) recently ruled that the manner in which the service was structured was non-compliant with federal regulations and could not continue to operate this year. Westport applied for a temporary exemption which allows the shuttle service to run until Jan. 1, 2015.
