SANTA CLARITA – The city has purchased two new, 60-foot-long flexible buses, a first that transit officials said should come in time for the new school year when student bus ridership is expected to increase. At $750,000 per bus, Jeff O’Keefe, the city of Santa Clarita’s transit manager, said the investment is worth every penny. “Understanding and recognizing the additional constraints, capacity and growth as it relates to schools, we purchased these buses,” O’Keefe said. The bigger buses, that bend at an accordion-style inset when they turn corners, will seat 60 passengers and carry 40 more standing. Regular buses seat 40 with 20 passengers standing. “Historically, we have had a great relationship with the Hart district transporting these kids,” O’Keefe said. City transit officials usually meet with Hart district staffers two to three months before the start of the school year to make sure the transportation needs of all students are met.

You’re all set! “They will be used on all local routes that travel by schools,” O’Keefe said. The city has provided school transportation for the Hart Union High School District since 2001, when a lack of state funding made home-to-school transportation for the district difficult. Since then, the number of students riding buses has doubled – from 200,000 in 2001 to 400,000 in 2006. Most recently, the city and the district have been working together to set up school routes for Castaic-area students who will be sent to Valencia High School in the fall because of overcrowding at West Ranch High. Hart officials met with transit officials weeks ago to start discussing new routes. O’Keefe added that the city recently completed its 10-year transportation development study, and based much of its plans to expand services on the growth of schools in the valley.
