AACPS Announces Improvements in School Bus Service

Twenty-one of the vans will be put into service on December 5, 2022, with the remaining three following a week later. The plan calls for buses to be able to address some general and magnet routes in the Annapolis, Broadneck, North County, and Old Mill clusters, and to potentially remedy all out-of-service general and magnet routes in the Meade cluster. Single routes in other clusters also may be positively impacted.

This is the second enhancement to transportation services this semester. In October, 37 school bus routes across the county that had been consistently out of service began offering partial service to students as part of a realignment of routing that allowed buses to add either morning or afternoon routes to their schedules.

Families will be notified of impacted routes the week of November 28, 2022. The van contracts expire at the end of this school year. AACPS is also in the process of preparing a Request for Bids for 40 vans to service students in the 2023-2024 school year and has plans for additional bidding requests to add approximately 25 to 30 vans over the next five years. The school system is also examining the possibility of utilizing used vans to make additional enhancements.

Details on specific routes impacted are still being finalized, but the buses can be used to provide routes that currently have partial service with full service or to full or partial-service to routes currently without any service.
