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 the international experience and the necessity of the increasingly difficult traffic conditions on the roads, we are pleased to offer organized delivery 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.

FAQs:

What are functions of the attendant?

The attendant will monitor the boarding/getting off of passengers, as we strongly believe that the driver cannot do so for safety reasons.

In addition, the attendant will provide information support from the side of the bus via the mobile application, including recording the boarding/getting off of the passenger, notification of delays/incidents, and any communication with the parent in case of need.

Which bus will be used for transportation of children?

A comfortable Mercedes Sprinter minibus, issued no earlier than in 2017, with a passenger capacity of 14 seats, equipped with safety belts and warning signs «children» will be provided for transportation.

What if the bus gets stuck in traffic jam?

In this case, the attendant will send a delay notification to the parents of those passengers who have not yet boarded the bus.

Junior school pupils must be accompanied by a parent/legal representative* while going to the drop-on point/going home from the drop-off point.

If communication fails, the pupil will be taken to the School from where he/she can be picked up by his/her parents/legal representatives.
