Bel Aire Elementary School students rush to board the green- and blue-route buses last week. Tiburon and Belvedere officials will add 13 new routes, and subsidize them, to help get traffic off the road.

Councils OK bus subsidy of up to $275,000 to cut traffic

Following a rare joint session, the Tiburon Town Council and the Belvedere City Council voted Feb. 24 to fund the Yellow Bus Challenge 2.0, a one-year experiment to see if putting more kids on school buses will take enough cars off the road during peak commute hours to significantly improve traffic on Tiburon Boulevard.

To encourage more riders, the program will offer round-trip bus passes at $430, about 50 percent off the current $847 price tag, and will provide 20 routes to and from the Reed Union School District's three schools — 11 in the morning and nine in the afternoon, up from just three in the morning and four in the afternoon this year.

The discounted bus passes for the 2015-2016 school year go on sale April 27.

The program is the second attempt to get a bus-pass subsidy in place after the two councils scrambled to authorize $302,000 in funding last July for the current school year, only to fall short of the minimum number of new signups required to commit the funding. They vowed to return, this time committing to the subsidy without a minimum signup requirement.

After a two-week search in coordination with the FBI that stretched to Wyoming and Utah, Tiburon police have arrested a 24-year-old San Rafael man on accusations that he helped a Tiburon teen run away from home and that he had illicit sex with the boy.

Michael Charles Super, whom authorities discovered with the 16-year-old at a Utah apartment complex early last week, turned himself in at Tiburon police headquarters about 6:30 p.m. Feb. 27, 16 days after the teen was first reported missing, according to police spokeswoman Laurie Nilsen.

______

Tiburon Peninsula residents may get new options for local medical care after county planners voted to allow medical clinics and labs at the business complex above Strawberry Village Shopping Center.

At their Feb. 23 meeting, Marin Planning Commission members voted 6-1 to allow 47,500 square feet of existing space at the nearly 100,000-square-foot complex at 1 and 2 Belvedere Place to be used for the medical offices — which Marin General Hospital has expressed interest in leasing.

Medical offices' hours would be limited from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. and would not include extended care, surgery or urgent care.
