We have a near crisis-level problem with traffic at all of our schools. It is critical that parents put bus-eligible children on the bus, rather than drive them to school. Yet, the city is considering an increase in bus fees.


Families that do the right thing have to pay. Parents who don't, pay nothing and impose the costs of their driving on all of this.

Here's a better suggestion: charge drivers to get within 1/4-mile of a school building during drop-off or pick-up. More money. Better policy.
