The American International School (AIS) offers a bus service for students to get to and from school. We use one of Vienna’s premier bus companies ‘Blaguss’ to provide this service.
American International School has procured one of Vienna’s premier bus service companies ‘Blaguss’ to provide this optional service to parents who wish to use it. As an additional service to parents, and to ensure the overall efficiency of this process, AIS may in its sole discretion facilitate registration with and/or invoicing by Blaguss, coordinate Blaguss’ bussing services (including quality management, lost & found) and undertake emergency support where appropriate. In accordance with its values and mission, AIS is dedicated to transmitting parent feedback to Blaguss to improve the safety of AIS’ students that use this third party service.
Please note that the Events Office is responsible for all communications with regards to the bus service.
We also provide you with a Blaguss contact in case you need to contact them directly.
There are currently seven routes designed with stops to best accommodate your needs. We do not provide ‘door to door’ service.
The six routes for school year 2022-23 and the location of bus stops are now being established. The stops are designed with student safeguarding as a priority. As such, students may be required to walk or use other means of transportation to reach a designated bus stop.
The stops are also designed by Blaguss to meet Austrian regulations for operating this transportation system.
School buses are numbered by route. There will be a sign in the front of each bus indicating the bus is traveling to and from AIS for example, “Bus 5”.
Families will be invoiced for the bus service in a timely manner on receipt of registration. However, invoices will not be sent before August 15.
Single tickets can be purchased at the Reception in the Main Office of AIS , at the Elementary School Office of AIS and from the Events Office at between 11.00-12.30
AIS staff will ONLY be present as the buses arrive and depart the campus. In addition staff will periodically check that students riding the bus have a valid bus card or single ticket.
In case of an emergency all bus drivers are trained in basic first aid and in the event of a more serious emergency the driver will call for medical assistance. In case of an accident or breakdown, the students will be kept on the bus until a replacement bus arrives or an alternative method of transport is found. Each driver has a cell phone and is in contact with the Blaguss headquarters and with the Events Office of AIS.
