Condensed Task Report on Pupil Transportation for the Ohio School System.
Byers, R. H.; Virgin, W. P.
This report, one of a series of eight, provides findings from a study of the Ohio pupil transportation system, a locally administered system partly regulated and financially supported by the State. After reviewing current transportation facilities for both regular and special education students, the study assesses various alternatives. Recommendations include reorganization of the present system into larger operating units, State ownership and maintenance of all school buses, centralized purchasing, expanded bus driver training programs, computerized routing service, and frequent bus inspections by trained personnel. The report was funded under ESEA Title III. Related documents are ED 028 279, ED 032 737, ED 035 967, and EA 002 870. (LR)
