Imagine a world with less traffic, cleaner air, and more affordable transportation. These are just some of the benefits that school bus ridership provides. While school buses are one of the safest ways to send your kids to school, there are many good reasons that make them a growing choice among parents for their children’s school commute. 

The True Cost of Cutting School Bus Service

While the monetary savings of cutting school bus funding are easily measured, what those cuts truly cost is rarely considered during budget planning. Without school buses, your community can count on more traffic and pollution. Families will spend more money filling up their gas tanks more often, and many children will have a difficult time getting to school on time, every day.
