MIT team whips up new Boston school bus routes

from Boston Herald

A new school bus route plan will save the city millions of dollars a year by taking dozens of buses — and potentially dozens of drivers — off the roads in an effort to bring students to school more efficiently. A Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor and doctoral students have come up with new routes to bus the city's more than 30,000 students by finding better connections between schools. Boston Public Schools Chief of Operations John Hanlon said the new system is projected to remove 77 of the fleet's current 650 buses and decrease daily trips from 3,000 to 2,700 — saving the district between $3 million and $5 million a year in transportation costs. more
