Horn, Michael B. – Education Next, 2023
Just as there's no one-size-fits-all way to educate students, perhaps there is no one-size-fits-all-way to get them to school either. That is the argument behind HopSkipDrive, a startup that is seeking to complement and redefine the traditional bus model of taking students to school. Instead of kids making their way to the pre-determined route of…

Maintaining a fleet of buses to transport students to school is a major expense for school districts. An efficient bus routing system can greatly reduce the time and cost associated with transportation, while also ensuring the safety and comfort of students. Optimizing large-scale school bus routing problems (SBRP) is challenging due to the huge…

In this chapter, we examine how spatial access, the extent to which individuals must traverse space or time to reach a community college, varies by time of day across socio-demographic groups. We specifically measure spatial access as the time required to travel to a community college by public transit, a common mode of transportation for many…

Ramirez, Dana W. E.; Klinkhammer, Martin D.; Rowland, Leah C. – Journal of School Health, 2021
Background: In-school transmission of COVID-19 among K-12 students is low when mitigation layers are used, but the risk of acquiring COVID-19 during school bus transportation is not well defined. Given the operational limitations of many school districts, more data is needed to determine what mitigation is required to keep COVID-19 transmission…

Sarah A. Cordes; Christopher Rick; Amy Ellen Schwartz – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2022
School buses may be a critical education policy lever, breaking the link between schools and neighborhoods and facilitating access to school choice. Yet, little is known about the commute for bus riders, including the average length of the bus ride or whether long commutes harm academic outcomes. We begin to fill this gap using data from New York…

Harju, Anne; Balldin, Jutta; Ekman Ladru, Danielle; Gustafson, Katarina – Global Studies of Childhood, 2021
In the Nordic countries, there is a culturally rooted understanding of nature as a 'good' place for children. The aim of the article is to deconstruct this understanding by exploring how different mobile preschools -- buses that bring children to different places on a daily basis -- relate to nature spaces and children's learning and well-being in…
