As you may have heard, Progressive Academy purchased its first school bus this summer. Well, not actually the first one we have owned, but the last time we owned a bus was 1986! However, we will be starting our first regularly scheduled before and after school route on Monday September 18th.
The route will start at 7:30 in Ellerslie, running through Summerside and Rutherford then coming up Terwillegar Drive. Depending on the area and the number and ages of children, we may start with to-the-door pickup, but as ridership increases we would have to move toward either street stops or parents coordinating students to one home in order to ensure minimum travel times for all. Fees will be $600 per year per student, which works out to only $60 per month. Unfortunately, as this is a highly subsidized program, we can not extend multi-student discounts for the bus.
If you are interested, please fill out the Bus Inquiry Form below, which will help us finalize our bus route. Please note that since we do have only one bus, we are not likely to be able to accommodate everyone, however if there is enough interest, we will certainly look to start a second route as soon as possible.
