Hillsborough commissioners wash hands of School Board's bus cuts
from Tampa Bay Times
Hillsborough County sent a message to parents concerned about the school district's decision to end some busing services in August: "We had nothing to do with this, and there's not much we can do to fix it. The Hillsborough County School Board voted in December to end so-called 'courtesy busing,' meaning free bus service for middle and high school students who live within 2 miles of their school. Since then, commissioners said their offices have been inundated with calls to step in to save the program or provide alternatives, like building more sidewalks between neighborhoods and schools."
