Neubiberg – Own school bus to bring children to Unterbiberg – district of Munich

After the district change, a separate school bus is to bring the children from Neubiberg to the elementary school in Unterbiberg. This was approved by a majority of the city council on Monday. An operator for the new line is to be found through a tender. A first offer resulted in costs of around 100,000 euros. Subsidies should be discussed with the District Attorney’s Office.

In October, the municipal council decided to apply to the school authority to change the school districts. The background to this is that the Neubiberg elementary school is very busy, while classes at the Unterbiberg elementary school have so far only been possible with the help of guest students. The change is currently being processed and implemented, as head of the regulatory office Rita Burkhard said at the meeting. Therefore, according to the municipality, some children have to be transported by bus from Äußere Hauptstrasse, Ilmstrasse and Isarstrasse – which, along with other streets, come to the elementary school district in Unterbiberg. 20 to 30 children are also expected from the container village for refugees on the old runway.

The district would have taken over the transport with an MVV line

Instead of a separate school bus line, there was also a debate about whether the frequency of the MVV line 211 V could be extended for the way to school in Unterbiberg. The mobility committee of the district council has already approved the additional trips at the request of the municipality. Because of the transportation of the students from the container village, a subsidy of 100 percent would even be in the room. The Neubiberg municipal councils welcomed this, Mayor Thomas Pardeller (CSU) saw it as proof of the solidarity in refugee care in the district.

Nevertheless, the majority of the committee decided in favor of their own bus, which should run between Werner-Heisenberg-Weg and the Unterbiberg elementary school. An important argument was that line 211V only went to the market square, not directly to the elementary school. It was said that the way from there to the elementary school was unsafe because of the curves. Stephanie Konopac (Free Voters) also pointed out that the schoolchildren would arrive in Unterbiberg at five to half past seven on the public line, which would be too early. The argument that you are more flexible with your own line if you have to change times was also made more often. At the suggestion of Carola Pfeiffer (Greens), it should be checked whether the school bus line could then serve the entire community from east to west.
