| Salesian introduces transportation service
for commuting students
Getting to Salesian just got easier. This year, Salesian High School in Richmond rolled out a new Transportation Service for students commuting from the Vallejo and Hercules areas.
"We listened to the feedback that we were receiving from our student-families and realized we needed a convenient option for commuting students" said Timothy Chambers, Salesian president and principal. "We value our Salesian families' time, and are excited to make their lives a little less stressful," added Chambers.
Salesian's Transportation Program is a partially subsidized service that provides students with round-trip service to and from Vallejo, Hercules and Pinole. The school partnered with Michael's Transportation to customize an effective and safe route with four pickup locations. The cost is less than $4 a day, amounting to less than one bridge toll in most cases. The service has been operating for several weeks already without any major issues. Salesian is expanding the service to include van transportation from Berkeley and Albany as well.
"Our students travel from all over the East Bay to receive a Salesian education. We have students from Vallejo and Martinez and many students from El Cerrito, Albany and Berkeley as well. Having a transportation service alleviates a lot of traffic concerns for our families," said Christina Karabinis, Salesian's director of admissions.
