Sign #2 – Sustainable Sites - How many buses stop at SBVC on a typical school day?
On Monday – Friday, between 5:23 am and 10:35 pm, Omnitrans
Route 1 buses stop right in front of the SBVC campus on Mt. Vernon Avenue a whopping
123 times. Southbound buses stop 60 times and northbound buses make 63 stops.
In addition, Route 15 buses (which travel on Mill St. just north of campus), pass
by 55 times each weekday (27 eastbound and 28 westbound) between 5:40 am and 7:27
Until the end of the 2017-2018, academic year, all SBVC students can ride for free
on regular Omnitrans bus routes by simply sliding their valid SBVC student identification
card upon stepping on to the bus. The Go Smart Program
is valid anytime on any route, not just trips to and from campus.
Riding the safe and clean-fuel-burning bus to campus is not only a money-saving opportunity
(gas, parking permits, and more) for all students, it is better for our environment.
