Be on the look-out for upcoming information on dramatically reduced pricing for Parker's stellar bus service!

Why Take the Bus?

It’s Safe — According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, students are about 20 times more likely to arrive safely at school taking the bus compared to being driven by a parent. Additionally, each of the buses in Parker's new fleet are equipped with the latest safety features, including well-padded high-back seats and a 3-point lap/shoulder seat belt for each rider, and all drivers undergo comprehensive safety certification training/testing.

Go Green — Riding a bus is a simple but effective method to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve traffic congestion. According to the American School Bus Council, one school bus will typically take 36 cars off the road. Plus Parker's new fleet of buses not ony meet but also exceed new bus emission regulations that took effect in 2010.

Save Time & Money — Having your student take the bus may actually save you money. The What is the Real Cost section is an estimate of the costs associated with driving your student to and from school each day using two common mileage cost measures. Even before considering your personal time savings, it is less expensive to pay for Parker's bus service on a total cost basis if you live in Zone 2 or Zone 3.

Zone 1 currently includes several pick-up/drop-off locations in La Jolla and University City. Other pick-up/drop-off areas will be added based on demand.

Zone 2 currently includes pick-up/drop-off locations in Bonita, El Cajon, La Mesa/Mount Helix and Scripps Ranch. Other pick-up/drop-off areas will be added based on demand.

Zone 3 currently includes pick-up/drop-off locations serving the North County Coastal area (Del Mar, Encinitas and Solana Beach) and North County Inland area (Escondido, Poway and Rancho Bernardo). Other pick-up/drop-off areas will be added based on demand.
