No bus stop at Mueller for LASA bus 0617
by aumoon on August 18th, 2011

I just got the bus stop information for LASA high school today. I was surprised to find out that there won't be a bus stop at Mueller for the bus coming back from LASA (0617) in the afternoon. There was a stop at Antone and Hermalinda last year for the LASA bus. Instead, the bus stop this year for the Mueller residents is at Cherrywood Rd and Schieffer Ave across from the Airport Blvd. It's a long walk for the kids to get home from this bus stop. Besides, there is no cross walk to cross Airport Blvd from Schieffer Ave. Safety is a big concern for the walk home from the bus.

I've raised my concern at the AISD bus service website. I think it will help to persuade AISD to have a bus stop at Mueller for the LASA bus if more people from Mueller who have kids attending LASA also write about their concern.

The website to contact the AISD bus service is

Thank you very much for your help.

Hey
Saw your post about the bus stop. Please contact Kristi Stillwell at Safe Routes to School, if you have not done so already. She would be interested in this problem and might be able to help. Call 311 for her number

I sent in this message:

"Hi! Last year, for the Liberal Arts and Science High School, there was a bus that stopped inside the Mueller neighborhood at Antone and Hermalinda in the afternoon. The bus has now been moved to Cherrywood Rd and Schieffer Ave, across from Airport Blvd. As a student, I feel extremely uncomfortable illegally crossing Airport Blvd to go home, especially when cars are racing past at over 60 miles per hour.

Please consider placing a bus stop inside of the Mueller neighborhood.

Thank you,
Natalie Tsai"


I got this reply:

"We will be adding a stop on the other side but I don't think we can get it to the driver in time for Monday.
I will send you a update Monday on the stop.

Thank you everyone for writing in about your concern. We now have a
stop at Emma Long and Pinckney. However, the bus ride from LASA this year is about 15 minutes longer because some routes might have been combined
due to budget cut. At least we get a stop inside Mueller!
