School Charges $400 A Student To Ride Bus

Last updated on Tuesday, November 1, 2011

(UNDATED)(WDRB) - Some school districts in Indiana are considering getting rid of buses to make ends meet. Districts are struggling with shrinking revenues and property tax caps.

Recently, a school district in Indianapolis angered thousands of parents. Franklin Township is charging families more than $400 dollars per child for bus service this school year. If Indiana's attorney general rules the move isn't legal, the district says it may have to drop bus service altogether.

Other Indiana schools are facing the same financial decisions.
