Promote use of public transport for students
It has been debated in the States and it will come up again, free bus use for students. Encourage children and young people to access public transport for their school commute and give them their independence to travel out of school time. This takes cars off the school run and always takes the mum and dad taxi off the roads in leisure time. Just one example, if they are going to build the skatepark at Les Quennevais bus use could be encouraged to transport youngsters to this site.
Why the contribution is important
Travel to school should not be costing so much, for families on lower incomes, bus fares every day can be expensive. The aim should be to reduce cars doing the school run. We are all aware of the congestion every day at school time. If children are not walking or cycling, the school bus is the most efficient means of transport.
