School Bus Service Resumes on St. Croix Sept. 29 With Fleet of New Buses

A fleet of 15 new school buses will begin servicing students in the St. Croix District beginning Wednesday, Sept. 29, following the finalization of contractual agreements between the Department of Education and Abramson Enterprises Inc., the company that operates the school buses.

The new buses are the property of the Virgin Islands Department of Education, and this marks the first time the general education student population on St. Croix will be transported in buses owned by the department. Historically, access to school buses on St. Croix had been contracted through Abramson. Special Education students on St. Croix have been transported in department-owned school buses since 2018.

PreK-3rd grade and Career and Technical Education Center students attending in-person classes will be picked up at designated locations in or near their neighborhoods. School bus service will not operate for Claude O. Markoe Elementary School, Sept. 29 through Oct. 1 because the school has reverted to virtual learning due to COVID-19 exposure on the campus.

Motorists are reminded to observe all safety signage and speed limits when approaching a stopped school bus or when driving in a school zone.

Students are expected to be waiting at the bus stop closest to their residence at least five minutes before the bus arrives.
