It costs 4 dollars a day here in Loudoun County, Virginia to bus kids. We here are fed up with that and soon the parents will be required to pay part of the bus trip costs. Busing was to end segregation, and gas was 90 cents a gallon. Once the segregation was ended bus service was kept as a convenience. It's the safest, it takes less time for the parent and less wear and tear on your car all benefits to the parents of school children. New Yorkers are getting raped!
