Despite school bus cutbacks, transit passes for students are a nonstarter

from Voice of San Diego

School buses don't come cheap for parents or for San Diego Unified. The school district charges parents $500 for bus rides to school, and sends those who pay late to a collections agency. Over the past seven years, the district has slashed its ridership by nearly half, and the program is facing further cuts. School buses are more than just a matter of convenience for parents. For some students, it's a matter a safety. They may see or fall victim to crimes as they walk home, and neighborhoods cut up by interstates or lacking proper sidewalks put children at risk of being hit by cars or trolleys. With more school buses in San Diego Unified rolling to a permanent stop, getting kids to school will likely become a concern for a growing number of parents. more
