From The Charlotte Observer: The Charlotte-Mecklenburg (N.C.) School District is saving about $3 million by booting 2,900 kids off the bus and making many others walk a bit farther to their stops. This year's changes mean the district will have about 100 fewer buses on the road than last year. The fleet of 1,155 will drive about 11,000 fewer miles each day, transportation director Carol Stamper says.
