I've lived all over this country and this is the only place where there are no school buses. What gives?

Buses went away when diesel hit $4 a gallon.

Now, parents are expected to fairy their kids to/from school. This causes huge traffic problems around the schools at certain times.

Do you mean "ferry"? Or use fairy magic? I wish I could. I can't wait until my youngest child gets his license and I can stop being the chauffeur.

My (and my kids') old school district still runs buses. The few times I had to take a kid to school, I'd drop them off a couple of streets away to avoid the gridlock of harried moms in SUVs. Then I'd watch them until they made it to the campus because paranoid.

Hey I thought it was weird too when I moved here but it gave me extra time with them in the morning. Kind of a family routine. I like it (was better pre covid).

It had nothing to do with the price of gasoline. Much of the bus service in California was cut during the last recession.

California is different from most other states in that it doesn’t require schools to provide busing except in limited circumstances, including for special education students. The state also covers less of the costs, on average about 40 percent, according to California Department of Education officials.

Yeah, look, I'm dealing with it, my job is reasonably flexible, but with this hybrid schedule, I or my wife have to pick up our son at 120. Not ideal, but it's blocked off my work calendar. I don't think having a bus is extravagant. It's supporting the citizens of your community.

Sounds like fun.

Is all CA that way? My in-laws in San Diego say they dont have buses either.
