After reading a post about a parent being freaked out seeing a small child on a public bus. I wondered how other peoples kids got to school?

2 years ago my kids rode public busing as there was no busing in that district. An we were a 1 car family, DH drove to work and kids took the local public bus to school and to home.

Now we have moved and I drive 1 to school and the other takes a school bus. We have gained a second car because again no school busing for High Schooler and only reason other child gets busing is she is a "choice child" meaning we picked the school out of distract for her to go to.

My middle schoolers USE to walk, then they got hit on their way to school by a man who ran a red light, now i drive everyone. Even tho my kids did nothing wrong, if i can prevent an accident from happening again, ill do it. So that means driving them every morning. They hate it lol they want to walk.

My youngest is the only one still in school ... and she is only taking a class here & there; she is working at the local community college and takes classes every once couple of semesters.  She'll drive herself.  But when the kids were in school for the most part they rode the school bus.

My 7yr old and 10yr old walk - their school is less than 10 mins away.  I usually drive them in the mornings so we have more time to get ready and eat breakfast.

My 12 yr old takes the bus.  Since the school is less than 2 miles away (I think it's exactly 2 miles!), we have to pay for the school bus - $580 per year.

I live about 2 miles from the school so the bus doesn't come. They either have to walk or be driven. I drive mine.
