He’s Got a Ticket to Ride … the School Bus

Current law requires (and funds) district-provided transportation to students living within 2.5 miles of their assigned school. About 90,000 students who live between 1 and 2.5 miles of their school would get bus rides, if the legislature passes and funds a proposal under discussion. The cost would be $26 million, or about $290 per student per year.
