Budget cuts target school buses

Aug. 10, 2009
Many districts are cutting back on transportation

From The New York Times: School buses have traditionally rolled through storms, subzero temperatures and even spikes in gas prices, but this year, many across the New York region and elsewhere are being grounded by the recession. The National Association for Pupil Transportation, an industry group, estimates that daily bus ridership dropped 5 percent, to about 25 million, in 2008-09 — the lowest level in more than a decade — and will likely drop further in the next year.
