BUS ROUTES AND STOP LOCATIONS
Yellow bus routes serving students in alternative programs are called modified-fixed routes. Students on modified-fixed bus routes walk a short distance (usually less than 400 metres) from home to a nearby ETS stop or intersection.
The ride may be up to 90 minutes one-way, but most students are on the bus for less than 60 minutes.
