LABBB Specialized Transportation Services
 
The LABBB Collaborative provides specialized transportation for students to and from school. LABBB has joined together with the EDCO Collaborative to coordinate transportation for six (6) of their member districts (Arlington, Belmont, Burlington, Lexington, Waltham and Watertown). Outside vendors provide this service.

This regional service has been promoted by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education In addition LABBB provides transportation for students from member districts who attend our programs.
 
I. BRIEF HISTORY of LABBB/EDCO TRANSPORTATION NETWORK

In 2008 LABBB, working with the business managers and special education staff from Arlington, Burlington and Lexington, developed regional routes for 21 students attending 5 different programs. One vendor was contracted to provide the service.

In 2009 the contiguous communities of Waltham and Watertown joined this effort. At this juncture EDCO joined with LABBB to coordinate the transportation of 100 students. Belmont became part of this regional activity in FY10.

A three year contract (September 2011 to August 2014) has been awarded to six different transportation vendors to transport over 400 students to approximately 100 different special education programs in about 40 different communities. The Collaborative transportation staff continue to work closely with the parents, receiving program staff, vendors and school system staff to insure a high quality, cost effective transportation.
 
II. LABBB INTERNAL PROGRAM TRANSPORTATION

LABBB also provides transportation (to and from school) for approximately 75 students from all LABBB member districts to specific LABBB administered programs for Middle School and High School students. The drivers are LABBB employees and the vehicles are leased by LABBB. This valuable service was initiated about 20 years ago.
