Have your children experienced significant transportation delays to and from school?
If you answered “yes” to the question above, your children are apparently not the only ones. One district in Camden County is experiencing such horrific transportation problems that they’re now trying to get creative with a solution. In fact, they go so far as to encourage families NOT to use the transport provided by the district.
New reports claim the Camden School District is in fact willing to pay parents up to a thousand dollars to drive their children to school every day. The shortage of bus drivers is so severe that it is nearly impossible for the drivers currently employed to get all children to school on time. It’s not the only thing they offer either.
Apparently they are also offer subscriptions to public transport. The problem with this option, however, is that the child must be accompanied at all times by someone over the age of 18. This is difficult to accommodate considering that most of these children, quite possibly, come from families. Someone is unlikely to be available each day at drop-off and pick-up times to accompany this child on an NJ Transit bus.
Apparently, the shortage of school bus drivers was also not due to the pandemic. Shortages were being felt across the state even before the pandemic was locked out. Now that the lockdown is over, people with CDLs are taking their licenses elsewhere for employment, hence the problem.
At the start of the school year, students in this particular district were more than 45 minutes late both to and from school. Obviously, this cannot last all year.
$ 1000 just to take your kid to school every day? No doubt people will do what they have to do to make it happen.
Gas has become quite expensive over the years. Will $ 1,000 be enough? See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving:
