Possibility of a Disruption in Yellow Bus Service

October 31, 2016

Dear Parent or Guardian:

We are writing to inform you of the possibility of a disruption in yellow bus service which may impact your child. This possible strike is a result of negotiations between Jofaz Transportation and Y&M Transit and the union representing the drivers. The Department of Education (DOE) contracts with the bus companies and is not a part of these negotiations.

The possible bus strike would impact 14,500 students – this includes approximately 12,000 in public school and 2,500 in non-public schools. About 600 bus routes in areas of Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Island would be affected. Bus routes in Manhattan, the Bronx and bus service providers other than Jofaz Transportation and Y&M Transit will not be affected.

We are deeply concerned about the impact of a strike on your family and we want you to be prepared and supported in the event one occurs. The DOE will ensure transportation options to meet the needs of all students, including students with disabilities. This includes private car options to ensure a safe and reliable ride to school.
