More Students In Springfield Eligible To Ride The Bus

The Springfield School District says 160 additional kids are eligible to ride the bus to class this school year.

The R-12 district recently revised its eligibility guidelines to expand bus service to more students who would be in danger of crossing a busy road if they walked to class. 

The director of transportation says so far, 40 of the 160 students are riding the bus. 

Kids are eligible for bus transportation if they live 1.5 miles from their elementary or middle school or 3.5 miles from their high school.
