Hernando school board votes to restore some courtesy busing

Last Updated: Thursday, May 08, 2014

The Hernando County School Board is reversing its previous decision to end busing for some elementary-age students.

According to our partners at the Tampa Bay Times, the board voted 3-2 Tuesday to offer busing for students who live between one and two miles from the county's nine elementary schools.

The bus service will start up again in the 2014-15 school year.

Last month the school board had rejected a proposal to reinstate bus service in an effort to help keep costs down.
