Ogden New Eastside Families…

As of today, our student headcount has reached 66 students. The total sum due to AI Bus Service is $91,800 for 180 days of service, including separate morning routes from the neighborhood to each campus, separate dismissal routes from each campus to the neighborhood, and a single combined after-school activity route from both campuses to the neighborhood. Based on the headcount, the amount due per student is $1,390.91.

The fees paid by any new students registering after this headcount will be collected and disbursed proportionally. We also continue to explore ways to make this service more efficient and to share that cost savings with you.

To complete registration, all items below must be completed and presented at registration:

1) print, read, and complete Registration Form;

2) review bus rules with your child and both sign the terms of service;

3) a Cashier’s Check, Certified Check, or Money Order in the amount of $1,390.91 made payable to AI Bus Service LLC (no personal checks accepted);

4) $10 cash for student identification card;

5) verification of residency in the New Eastside, such as IL drivers license or IL state ID, current utility bill, lease, or condo assessment statement. We will not keep a copy of this information. We only need verification of residence in the neighborhood.

If you have any questions, just let us know.



Cost update…not yet finalized!

Ogden New Eastside Families…

We have collected the responses to the headcount email. So far there are fewer reservations than expected causing the current fee calculation of approximately $1435 to be higher than estimated. While we feel the bus is a good value, we want to be as cost-conscious as possible.

We have discussed our options with the bus company and are brainstorming ideas to reduce the individual cost to families. While we continue to explore these options, we are delaying the distribution of final registration details until the week of registration, Monday, Aug 29, at the latest, so that we can offer the best individual price possible.

If you know of families in the New Eastside neighborhood who are interested in the bus but have not yet reserved a seat, please have them contact us at OgdenPayBus@gmail.com or forward the headcount email to them, because additional riders reduce the incremental cost to everyone.

Best regards…
