Yellow Buses

I recognize that short term this is a problem which isn't easily solved, but longer term we really should rethink the amount of tax dollars we spend busing kids to and from school. It's yet another way that sprawl development is subsidized. We spend a hell of a lot of money on a single purpose mass transit system.

Again I recognize that short term just cutting bus service is going to be a big problem for people, depending on the age of their children and proximity and path to school, but longer term we should recognize that this is a pretty dumb system.
