Removing School Buses - Bad Idea
The school district, eternally strapped for cash, is thinking about cutting its bus routes. Our MUNI system will feel the pain. Many of the bus routes in the City are already de facto school buses. And let's be honest, many are unruly and out of control, not to mention, many of the students don't pay. I ride the buses on Mission Street, Van Ness, and near Glen Park and have witnessed it all.
The school district needs to look for other ways to cut costs. School buses have their place, and help many isolated children access quality education, in a way MUNI can not.
