Has your child been late to school because of bus service?
The following is a message on the Boston Public Schools website:
We are working hard every day to restore normal bus service for our students. If you are still having issues, please call the BPS Transportation Department at 617-635-9520 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Friday, 80.1% of our buses arrived at school before the bell. Of these, 44.3% arrived more than 10 minutes early, the highest figure so far this year. About 5% were 11-29 minutes late, however, with 0.8% arriving more than 30 minutes behind schedule.
Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has threatened to pull the $66-million contract away from First Student, the transportation company that provides bus service to the Boston Public Schools system.
What do you think of this? Should this move BPS closer to having neighborhood schools so we save money on transportation and make sure that are students are not late because of buses?
