2/25/14: The Hopkins transportation department has moved a few stops from some buses to other buses. Attached you'll see the route copies listing the new stops. Some Drop off times have also changed due to taking some stops off the route. Please be sure to study the routes to determine if this has an effect on your student's transportation. These changes will be effective on Monday, March 3rd. Any questions or concerns should be addressed to Thomas Berlin, Hopkins Bus Router, at 952-988-4117.

Shuttle Bus to/from Hopkins High School
Many of our students will start using a transfer bus to/from HHS. A map of where the transfer bus will be located at HHS in the morning and afternoon can be found under the ‘HHS Bus Parking Map’ link listed above. The map also shows where the other buses are parked in the afternoon so the students can more easily figure out where to go. The process for how the transfer bus will work is as follows:

MORNING: the buses are scheduled to arrive at Hopkins High School at 7:25am and drop off the HHS students upon arrival. The MSSPA students will transfer to bus #1376; the transfer will depart HHS once all the buses have arrived.

AFTERNOON: the transfer bus #1376 will depart MSSPA promptly at 2:35. When the bus arrives at HHS, the students will exit the transfer bus and board the bus they need to ride home.

For questions regarding the shuttle bus, please contact Hopkins Transportation directly at 952-988-4115.

The students not riding the transfer bus to/from Hopkins High School will utilize the buses as they have been the past few weeks. The busses are scheduled to arrive at MSSPA at 7:30am, and they are scheduled to depart at 2:35pm.

Rationale behind the Location of Bus Stops:
Our bus routes are tailored to ridership needs in the most efficient way possible to maintain reasonable ride times for all riders. The locations of the stops for the students at MSSPA were chosen by a few different criteria but Hopkins had two restraints they had to adhere to: Hopkins could only use five buses and the routes could not be longer than one hour total. The goal is to make transportation available to every student at MSSPA, but due to the restraints, some families will have to find their own means to transport their child to the hub stop that they would prefer to use. MSSPA is selling the MTC student bus pass, maintaining carpool information and selling student parking passes to help you get your child to the hub stop.

Stops have been centralized for multiple students and as close to major thoroughfares as possible. The intent was that the bus would be able to easily navigate to the stop and back to the major road as quickly as possible to keep routes running on time. To see more about the criteria used to create bus stops, refer to the bus stop change request form listed above.

Ridership on all of the routes will be monitored closely and Hopkins will try to find opportunities to relocate stops if possible without negatively affecting students who are utilizing the busing. Keep in mind that making adjustments to the routes may take some time and that we hope to do the audit of the routes in late September.
