While visiting a small island in the British Isles a few years ago, we were on a
public bus in the afternoon. That particular "run" in the schedule was
school bus time. The bus picked up elementary-aged children from school and
dropped them off in their neighborhoods. That was the most fun I've had on
a bus in a long time! Adorable and well-behaved children, wearing uniforms, of
course.Perhaps Canyons School District could have a bus
"supervisor" ride each way with the children, much like a crossing guard
job. During the school runs, those seats would only be available to public
school students. Signs indicating that restriction and the times involved would
be painted on the walls next to the seats. The seats could be a different
color, yellow like the school bus, or upholstered to resemble a bus. There
would be some logistical issues to figure out, but putting the children on a UTA
bus makes a lot of sense.
@SASYeah, let's put unsupervised school kids alone on a bus
with a bunch of stoned snowboarders. What could possibly go wrong?
During the ski season, at least, UTA runs ski buses in the canyon. They carry
skiers up the canyon in the morning, down the canyon in the afternoon. Should
stand to reason that there would be empty space for the kids to ride down the
canyon in the morning, and up the canyon in the afternoon.But that
would make too much sense?
