Los Angeles Unified School district is launching a new evening transportation service for students at the Young Empowered Scholars Academy to ensure equitable access to after-school tutoring.
The service, which began Jan. 9, transports students back home after their tutoring session concludes, providing families with a safe and reliable mode of evening transportation for their child. In the coming weeks, the service will be expanded to additional schools across the district based on academic need.
“Our students should have access to tutoring without the burden of orchestrating transportation back home,” Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho said. “With this new service, Los Angeles Unified families will have access to after-school tutoring with the assurance that their child will be given safe transportation back home. These efforts reaffirm our commitment to providing targeted academic support to our students.”
The new transportation service aligns with Los Angeles Unified’s 2022-26 Strategic Plan, ensuring that all students have equitable access to tutoring at school with programs designed to eliminate opportunity gaps. Students who may have experienced difficulty securing evening transportation for after-school tutoring will now have access to the district’s vast transportation network. The new evening bus service will provide transportation for students that participate in after-school in-person tutoring with two scheduled pickup times between 4:45 and 6:00 p.m. at select school sites through the end of the school year.
Interested families should contact their child’s school to learn about availability and scheduled pick-up times.
