It is more than a little disgusting that the school district that cut busing a few years ago rather than cut a few administrative jobs now has the gall to charge families extra for the privilege of busing.
It is taking a lot of restraint to keep my comments expletive free.
Thank you Tom. My feelings exactly.
What do we NOT have to pay for in life? Lunch was once fifty cents long ago.... It's cheap, and the best thing that happened in Danville. Love Traffix and how well this program is run!
Great for the 50 MV families that were able to score a pass in the first couple hours. It's unfortunate that they will not add another bus. I sure hope County Connection continues their bus route in the afternoon, otherwise my kid doesn't have a ride home from school.
The school library is open until 5p.m. Have your student do homework there until traffic clears up. I usually whip through at 4:30p.m., no traffic problems.
Wouldn't use it even if I wanted to as it reminds me too much of the last scene in Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Also, for the families who wanted to use it, should have been a lottery like the high school parking to make it fair! I am sure there are families who got spots that are just being lazy and really don't need the bus.
Hmm. The Town of Danville takes in Measure J money for traffic reduction, spends it on a bus program for the Diablo Road/Stone Valley corridor to ease the horrific traffic there, then proposes to add a new major subdivision of clustered homes on Diablo Road that will add over 1,000 car trips daily to that corridor, where the new students will all go to MVHS (or Los Cerros or Green Valley) and the dads will cruise out Diablo Road and Stone Valley Road to the freeway on their commute to work. Makes perfect sense to me. Please pass the popcorn...
Another socio-political conundrum.
School as extended caretaker scares many of us.
No one is "entitled" to a ride to school. Geeze.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
