Where did LA's school buses go?

Hosted by

California is one of the few states that does not require school systems to provide buses for all kids to get to campuses. Thus, California is near the bottom in per-pupil bus riders. LAUSD serves more than 600,000 students, and 41,000 of them ride the district's buses each day.
