We are pleased to announce that USN will continue to offer convenience and help lessen our carbon footprint by providing bus service to school each morning, beginning with the first day of school.
We will have seven different pick-up points this year, along four different routes, just as we did last year.
Hillsboro route: The pickup point will be the Hillsboro Church of Christ at 5800 Hillsboro Road. The bus will arrive by 7:10 a.m. and depart promptly at 7:15 a.m. for USN.
Harding route: The first pickup will be at the Belle Meade Plaza at the Office Depot parking lot on the corner of Harding and Woodmont, 4544 Harding Pike. It will depart at 7:10 a.m. and travel to Elmington Park to make a second pick-up at the Jesse White bus shelter by 7:15 a.m. At 7:20 a.m., it will depart for USN.
I-65S route: The first pickup will be at the Brentwood Civitan Park at 8011 Concord Road. It will leave this point at 7 a.m. sharp and travel to the 100 Oaks Staples parking lot at 100 Powell Place by 7:15 a.m. It will depart at 7:20 a.m. for USN.
East Nashville route: The first pickup will be at the Inglewood Kroger at 6:45 a.m. It will leave this point at 7 a.m. sharp, and travel to East Park parking lot by 7:15 a.m. It will leave East Park promptly at 7:20 a.m. bound for USN.
In order to streamline the billing process, the bus service will have an annual fee of $300 per family. If you want to discontinue riding at some point during the school year, billing will stop at the first of the month. For example, if you wanted to stop riding on December 15th, you would not be billed starting January 1.
If you are new to the bus service, feel free to try it out. Let your children ride the first week. If they like it, you can sign up. If not, you will not be billed at all. We are confident the convenience and camaraderie will win you over.
