Thank you very much to all our parents/guardians who responded to the Student Transportation Survey in December. We had over 250 responses which provided us with some great suggestions and support for how we could proceed.
Following negotiation and planning over the past several weeks we are now ready to announce the launch of a Sha Tin College & Sha Tin Junior School – Shuttle Bus Service beginning Monday March 5th from Fo Tan MTR Exit B. The coach has 60 seats available per journey and each seat is equipped with a seat belt.
As stated previously, the Shuttle Bus Service will be introduced on a trial basis until the end of June 2018. Over the course of that time we will be monitoring the uptake of the service, what times & locations work best for our students, and the impact of the service on traffic volume.
Sha Tin College & Sha Tin Junior School – Shuttle Bus Service
From Fo Tan MTR – Exit B (down the stairs at Exit B to Au Pui Wan Street) to STC/SJS Return
As with any pilot project there are likely to be some logistical challenges. Our intention is to continuously monitor and evolve the Shuttle Bus Service until such time as the service is optimised for our students. As such there may be changes made to departure times and other logistics over the course of the pilot project.
As always, we appreciate your support and welcome your feedback, as we roll out what we hope will be a service that enables our students to access the College more easily and safely. We also hope the impact of College operations on our neighbours, in terms of traffic congestion and environmental impact will also be reduced.
