The city will contribute $375,000 to offer all Travis School District students a reduced-fee bus pass as well as provide additional school buses and routes during construction of the Fairfield Train Station and improvements to Peabody Road in a proposal the City Council takes up Tuesday.
Peabody Road will be closed June 12 until August 2016 from Vanden and Cement Hill roads to Huntington and Whitney drives. Peabody Road is one of the main corridors to transporting students, a city staff report notes.
Fairfield will contribute $125,000 for student bus passes and $250,000 to assist Travis School District with costs of additional buses and routes for the Peabody Road closure.
