Report: Wake County Schools Cutting Bus Routes Again
A report via Jon Camp at ABC 11 details that Wake County Public Schools are looking to cut bus routes again this year. The report says they want to cut out around 3,000 of the current 25,000 routes.
I was semi-vocal about this last year, but if it happens this year I won’t be quietly emailing behind the scenes.
Get your act together, WCPSS. Stop blaming budgets and drivers. Stop cutting routes to save money at our student’s expense because you can’t work out a billion dollar budget.

RALEIGH, N.C. — Wake County students will walk further to bus stops this traditional school year as the Wake County Public Schools System cuts school bus routes and stops to improve the efficiency of its transportation system, the district announced Monday.
School busses will travel 116 fewer routes and make 4,000 fewer stops than last school year, said the district, which also outlined maximum walking distances to bus stops:
Three-tenths of a mile for elementary students
Half a mile for middle and high school students
With 21,000 stops, most students will not be affected, officials said.
According to one parent, this is crap. Kids who live in the “walk zone” are being told they can’t ride the bus. A Wake parent contacted me and told me the following:
