Convincing FWCS to cut costs instead of bus rides.

At this evening's 6 pm LP meeting at the deli of Kroger of Coventry, I will be presenting my alternative school bus schedule plan for your helpful criticism and questions.

Fort Wayne Community Schools (FWCS) is facing a $2.5 million shortfall in its Transportation budget and is dealing with it by cutting bus service to 4,000 to 6,000 former bus riders.  A No Transportation Zone (NTZ) of 1, 1.5 or 2 miles around elementary, middle and high schools will not get rides, even if they have morning babysitter outside the NTZ.

Parents who have to work at school start and stop times are wondering how they can stay employed and still get their kids to school.

I have figured out a solution.

Using the delivery patterns of city buses and airlines, I have devised a new pattern of pick-ups that is more efficient.  It should save money and give more kids rides. Now I have to convince the school administration and the board of trustees.

My Facebook page Save Bus Rides at FWCS will be back up tomorrow.
Please call me at 260 484-5946 to talk about it.
