School has begun and so have many of the after-school activities and sports programs.
Many of the children in the school districts cannot participate because they have no transportation home after these activities. Both parents are working or families have just one car that the father must use for work or the mom doesn't drive.
Friends are not always participating in the same programs, so rides cannot be shared.
At one time schools had activity buses for the children. Why can't we put them back on the road?
It is important to keep our children physically active.
