The bus overfloweth

I was reading a story about a local school district that apparently is having bus issues. Kids are sitting three to a seat, and this is middle and high schoolers, not little kids! Some kids are even sitting in the aisles, to me that is insanely dangerous. Of course the transportation service issued a statement saying they don't condone sitting in the aisles, but they didn't confirm or deny that it's happening.

Have you seen anything like this before, ladies? I started thinking about it, and Bub rides the bus home in the afternoon. I have no idea if it is super crowded, I plan to ask him though.

    I do know when I lived in So Cal ad rode the city bus to work all the kids would take the city bus to school because it was so much cheaper (I know they charged a few hundred every month to ride the school bus) and they would crowd the bus to the point where when you reached your stop you almost couldn't get off sometimes. It was literally people sitting on top of people.

      I know with the school district I was in, if there was more than two to a seat the bus wouldn't move. And very rarely would the driver say something-we were just expected to know why.

          Agh, yes. We actually had to do that on one of the buses I rode when I was in school. Amy That is NUTS they made you pay for school buses. I didn't know anywhere did that.

          Well this was about 2 years ago. But they make the parents pay for the bus. I was so shocked because there were so many school kids on the city bus going to school and asked one of the parents. I couldn't believe it either.

          I know it was a few hundred a month...we were in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA so Orange County...I think it's crazy. It was only like $30 a month for a student pass every month on the city bus. So most parents do that.
