My son takes the school bus to West Junior High. Oftentimes coming home, students bring their friends home and there’s no place to sit on the bus. Did they ever consider giving bus passes for those who ride the bus to make sure they do have a seat? My son has had to walk home several times because there’s no room to sit, and we live three miles away. The district is starting a new tracking policy this year, said Tom Bracciano, transportation director. Each student riding a bus must submit a form. The district will then track who is riding buses on each route. There will be no bus passes, however.
