DENVER — At Denver Public Schools, students in the Far Northeast and Near Northeast communities have a new way to access greater school options and opportunities: the Success Express.
District officials said that the shuttle system, which began with the 2011-12 school year, supports all students attending a participating Far Northeast or Near Northeast school by providing safe, convenient and reliable yellow school bus transportation.
Any student can board the bus at any stop and ride it to his or her participating school of choice. Students can also take advantage of extended service hours — the Success Express runs from 6:30 to 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. to support before- and after-school activities.
The shuttle system offers three pickup times and three drop-off times at each stop.
Officials said that each bus has an aide on board to ensure that students get on and off at the right places — and safely. Students also wear ID tags showing which school they attend.
