A school “tripper” is extra bus service added to alleviate overcrowding on certain published bus routes serving Long Beach area schools. School trippers are open to all customers. These services are provided as-needed and are subject to change based on bus availability and customer demand during peak student travel times. Trippers are not added to all routes serving local high schools.
School tripper service may be operated under the following conditions:
- There is sufficient demand to warrant the operation of a tripper;
- There are sufficient resources to operate a tripper;
- The school tripper will not result in a significant increase in travel time for regular customers; and
- The school tripper is operated as part of the regularly scheduled public transportation service.
