The first reason how this supports my claim is that most elementary, middle and high schools use the same busses. If all schools use the same busses and change the school start and end time that will have a big impact on busses. It also may mix the busses and some schools may not have busses that day. Another reason how this supports my claim is that most busses are structured around early schedules. If schools change their start times then it would only make the busses keep their positions and mess up the bus schedules so changing the start time would only cost
The problem with using the ATA bus system to solve the campus parking problem is the location of the bus stops, the time waiting for the bus, and the cost of the bus if the stop is off campus. The free stops on campus are only located within campus. Off-campus students will still have to find a way to get to campus to get on the bus. If a student wants to get on an ATA bus outside of campus they will be charged a fee. Another problem is students do not want to wait on the buses to get to their stop or if the miss a stop they have no way to get to
7. You must stop for a stopped school bus loading or unloading students unless there is a median between your vehicle and the school bus.
Prior to the trip, I made sure what time I had to be in school for and what time the bus would be leaving. This was well after my normal start time for work so I didn’t need to leave the house any earlier. As the journey was about 45 minutes, it was a direct route. Therefore, no stops were needed.
-Since I have experience with riding buses, I know that busy hours are in the morning and afternoon, when people are going to work and to school and after work and school. Normally, there’s mixed crowds of people going to work in their uniforms or business attire and there are people of all ages going
The situation above is something many college students, especially those here at the University of California Riverside (UCR), are well aware of. Although there are tons of parking lots here at UCR, students still struggle to find a place to park. One of the main reasons is because of the increase in students attending across campuses all over the US. According to the National Center for Educational Statistic, “Between 2001 and 2011, enrollment increased 32 percent, from 15.9 million to 21.0 million.” As a result, the amount of parking spaces here at UCR could not compensate for the growing number of students. A lack of parking spaces can cause many detriments toward the students as it can hinder with their class schedules, cause them to either be late or miss a class, and overall affect their grades. If UCR implement a shuttle bus system for the empty parking lots that are far away from the school, students would be less stress about the parking
In Justin O’Neil’s article, “Should Schools Start Later”, he says, “ School bus schedules are arranged to meet the needs of not just one school, but all the schools in a district…..” and then proceeds to say “Later start times would mean some districts might have to invest in additional buses and drivers, which can be expensive.” This explains that if we started school later, buses will have to figure out a way to get children from every school they are responsible for, if there are no staggered times. If they could not solve this problem, we would need more buses and drivers. Transportation will then turn into another dreadful problem that we would have to fix. Also, think about how the bus driver would probably get home later. This could interfere with their personal
Still, other protesters of starting the school day later cite that there would be many logistical complications with bus transportation. This is because many school districts have ingrained detailed bus transportation schedules that depend on the school start times to be different for elementary, middle and high
First, it would cause for the bus drivers to change their daily route schedule. Elementary school students are usually starting school at around 8:30 a.m., which would be the same time as high school students if the schedules were to change. This means that the board of education would have to hire extra bus drivers to be able to get all of the students to school on time. Although, there is a solution that could easily fix the bus schedule problem. If the time schedules are changed between the elementary and high school students, meaning the elementary students show up to school earlier, then the buses would be running the same routine. This means that it will not result in extra charges for them because they would still be working the same
The board adopted a new schedule after months of planning and gave middle schools and high schools an extra hour and ten minutes of sleep where they began at 8:50 and 8:40 am respectively. Elementary schools began thirty minutes earlier at 8:00 am to make the bus schedule run smoothly and without interference. The implementation of the change went very smooth and no additional drivers were required to make the transportation work. The
The article Should School Stay Earlier? by elenam112 states “This means the school would be open longer, resulting in larger electrical and heating bills.” Schools would need to stay open later at night for after school activities and stay open early in the morning for students who are dropped off early. Schools may even have to purchase lights for after school activities. Schools would also have to change their bus transportation systems which are designed to run as efficiently and inexpensively as possible. The average national cost that schools need to pay for each student’s bus transportation is $459. Changing the system could result in many more
The first bus stop in North County would be located where N. Lindbergh Blvd and Graham Rd. meet. The second bus stop in South Country would be located where Kirkwood Rd and Big Bend Rd meet. The last and third bus stop in West County would be located where Manchester Rd. and New Ballas Rd. meet. This solution will be implemented by contacting a company name “First Student”. ‘First Student” is a charter bus rental company this is located in numerous cities in the United States including St. Louis and surrounding areas. The company “First Student” charges 1.50 per passenger and 1.50 per hour. Depending on the number of students that ride the bus the cost will not be that
One of the common ways to solve the problem is to build a parking lot, but they aren’t able to take into consideration the cost of the whole building and the matter on if the students will even guarantee a parking spot (John Peloza, Moritz Loock, James Cerruti, and Michael Muyot.). Since the parking lot is always full and students and staff are usually scrambling to find spots, it would be easier to create a system in which the user can be able to reserve spots in the parking lot. To be able to help students who are waste time looking for their car, it will have a car tracker. It mainly keeps track of where the car is parked with by the parking number and GPS to where the car is currently located in. Most students drive themselves to school; this makes students take up more space in the parking lot. To properly use the parking spaces there will be options to make carpooling more easily accessible. For instance, students who carpool could have closer parking. Another option is to give students the option to carpool with a person who is on the route to school.
Even though the busses might be used for elementary and middle school both school times would be changed so the busses would just come a hour later. I personally know that if
won't have a ride to school. Also if teens started later that means changing their whole schedules. If school gets out later, students who are involved in other activities will be busy until much later than they are currently. This would also leave children arriving home later and eating dinner later, which poses its own health risks. Students wouldn’t be late if school hadn’t started so early. Nearly 10% of the U.S high schools now are starting before 7:30a.m,40% start before 8:00a.m and only about 15% start after 8:30a.m. Over 20% start class 7:45 a.m or earlier. Students who are picked up shortly after 5:30a.m in some districts and teens must wake up at 5 or 6 to make it to school. If schools didn’t start that early many people would make it to school on time. Sometime the bus comes earlier than when they're supposed to come so students don’t make it on time cause they wait for the bus to come at it’s regular time. So that students can make it to school on time and not be late they should have later school
