Next year, Almaty plans to launch buses for all public schools.  This was stated by the mayor of the city Yerbolat Dosaev during a meeting with the population of the Medeu district.

"Next year we are going to launch a school bus programme in Almaty for all schools. We are negotiating and preparing solutions. We will try to solve this problem faster. There are traffic jams everywhere," Dosaev said.

 "If private schools join this programme, I will accept them with pleasure. The city will try to cover all schools with buses, I think this will greatly relieve the streets. We are now preparing a program and calculating the possibilities," the mayor added.

Following international experience and the experience of increasingly difficult traffic conditions on the roads of Almaty, we are pleased to offer supervised minibus services for our pupils.

During the pilot 1 route will be launched, which will run near the central streets of the city of Almaty, its plan and timetable can be found here.

Advantages

We want to make the trip to school a positive start to the day for pupils and parents and to reduce time lost in traffic jams. This service will give more options to families to arrive and depart from the school with a reduction in the need for a driver or separate car for this purpose.  

Software

BatOnRoute

The comfort of our pupils and peace of mind for parents is very important, and we will use the best technology to organise a transparent and user-friendly process. For this purpose the School has concluded an agreement to use BatOnRoute software.
We believe that this app will be very useful for parents, providing more information and ease of update.
