School bus survey for parents

The Measure J School Bus Program Parent Survey has been circulated to approximately 22,000 families whose children attend public schools in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District.

"It allows us to have an understanding of what parents' needs are in regards to school transportation," said district spokesman Terry Koehne.

Approximately five bus routes currently serve between six to eight schools in the district, Koehne said. Parents pay for the transportation, although the district funds busing for special education students.

The scope of the school transportation program is being studied by Danville, San Ramon, Contra Costa County and the school district to develop it to serve the needs of the San Ramon Valley. Funds from Measure J, the countywide half-cent sales tax measure to relieve traffic congestion, are earmarked to develop a student transportation system.

The survey is available online until April 10 at www.ci.danville.ca.us
