Price for student bus pass excessive

It does not make sense that parents can buy their child a resort season pass for less than a school bus pass. When youth season passes at local resorts can be purchased for as low as $99, $150 for a student bus pass seems excessive.

The price discourages parents from using the bus system. Adding additional cars to already congested school zones and running less than full buses is not environmentally conscious either.

This does not seem to be the best decision for our community.
