KUSA - As families begin to recover from the devastating floods that have destroyed or significantly damaged major roadways into its mountain communities, the BVSD superintendent's office has asked BVSD Transportation to launch a temporary school bus shuttle service between Boulder and Nederland beginning Monday morning.

This service is for any BVSD students who live in the mountains west of Boulder's 4th Street who cannot easily get to their schools in town. For some of these individuals, getting to Nederland is easier, due to road closures in the canyons.

In the morning Monday through Friday, the BVSD school bus shuttle will depart from the Nederland RTD Park n Ride at 5:38 a.m. and arrive at Boulder High School at 7:27 a.m. Once at Boulder High, students will depart the shuttle and make the following transfers:

• Students going to Flatirons Elementary School or Manhattan Middle School should look for and board the school bus for Route 508.

• Students going to Casey Middle School, Foothill Elementary School or Centennial Middle School should look for and board the school bus for Route 501.
• Students who have taken the shuttle bus from Nederland and are headed for the Arapahoe Campus and Centaurus High School should make the necessary connection from Boulder High (1604 Arapahoe Ave.) to RTD.
In the afternoon, BVSD students returning to Nederland will do the following:
• Students returning from Flatirons Elementary School will depart on the shuttle to Nederland from Flatirons at 3:52 p.m. (PLEASE NOTE: Since school dismisses at 2:50 p.m., shuttle riders will go to Flatirons after-school program until boarding the shuttle.)
• Students returning from Casey Middle School will depart Casey at 3:42 p.m. on the bus for Route 509 and transfer to the shuttle at Flatirons Elementary.
• Students returning from Boulder High School will depart BHS at 3:46 p.m. on the bus for Route 509 and transfer to the shuttle at Flatirons Elementary.
• Students returning from Arapahoe Campus and Centaurus High School should be at Boulder High School via RTD by 3:46 p.m., board the bus for Route 509 and transfer to the shuttle at Flatirons Elementary.
• Students returning from Foothill Elementary School will depart Foothill at 3:27 p.m. on the bus for Route 506 and transfer to the shuttle at Flatirons Elementary (PLEASE NOTE: Since school dismisses at 2:55 p.m., shuttle riders will go to Foothill's after-school program until boarding the shuttle.)
• Students returning from Centennial Middle School will depart Centennial at 3:35 p.m. on the bus for Route 506 and transfer to the shuttle at Flatirons Elementary.
• Students returning from Manhattan Middle School will depart Manhattan at 3:39 p.m. on the bus for Route 523 and transfer to the shuttle at the BVSD bus stop at 22nd Street and Baseline Road.
The BVSD shuttle will return to the Nederland RTD Park n Ride at approximately 5:25 p.m. BVSD administration will meet with BVSD Transportation after a week to assess how this temporary measure is serving the affected BVSD families.
