District Cuts Most Bus Service

Faced with a $28 million deficit, the district's school board had some tough decisions to make over the summer.

"Because of our budget situation in California we've virtually eliminated our home-to-school transportation."

That's Jonathan Raymond - Superintendent of the Sacramento City Unified School District. He says many of the 130 bus routes have been cut but there are some exceptions, including kids in Special Education.
 
There will also be limited service for students whose routes to school include crossing railroad tracks and other safety risks.
 
Fewer buses may mean more car traffic around campuses and school officials are advising parents who drop off their kids to leave for school a little earlier this year.
