The Flagstaff Unified School District announced Wednesday that starting January 4th, the district will discontinue transportation for all high school students who live within the Flagstaff city limits. FUSD officials say the reason for the change is a direction they received from the Arizona Department of Public Safety. DPS says middle school and high school bus routes must only be loaded with two passengers per seat to comply with safety regulations. Students living in Doney Park, Baderville, Parks, Bellemont, Mountainaire, Kachina Village, Cameron, Leupp and other areas, will still be eligible for transportation. The district also says they will discontinue transportation for middle and high school students attending out-of-boundary schools or magnet programs. These changes won’t impact Summit High School students, or special education students, homeless/McKinney-Vento, or foster services and are eligible for transportation. Officials say students can purchase a 2024 Spring Semester transit bus pass on the Mountain Line to help with transportation to and from school.
