Cleveland plan will enable more students to ride public transportation to school

Dec. 1, 2013
Students in 6th grade or above will be provided with bus passes if they live more than a half-mile from school.

A deal struck between the Cleveland school system and the area's Regional Transit Authority reduces how much students have to walk, while possibly saving the school district money. The Cleveland Plain Dealer says the plan will give students from sixth grade up bus passes if they live more than a half-mile from school. The number of students using buses and trains is expected to rise from 8,500 to as many as 14,000. The RTA is increasing the district's volume discount, and that could save the school system about $500,000 a year.
