Wellesley High bus ridership

What happened when they took away student parking at Wellesley High? The number of applications for buses jumped from 246 (of 1200 students) to 372 (so far). Apparently, the demand for student parking is not all need-driven.

The depressing nugget in this little tale of parking supply driving car use? Seventy-one percent of Wellesley students are driven to school by their parents. That's appalling.
