No BOE Busing today For The Way Home

For those schools that have BOE contracted busing through the LSTA there will not be any busing for the way home today. Although the Lakewood school district is getting paid extra from the LSTA to bus students to private schools, the buses are still bound to the public school schedule who are on a shortened day schedule. Hopefully next year the bids should stipulate that bus companies must conform to the schedule of the private schools.

  1. The public school couldn't care less about the non public busing. They are not a bus company. If the bids say that,then the public school just won't pick up these routes. They feel that they are doing you a favor by doing it ,even if they are getting paid. They are not in the bus business. Its government money and they don't care if they make money or not.

  2. What a disaster this LSTA has done to Mandated bussing. NO EXCUSE FOR THIS.
    BUT ONCE AGAIN THE LARGER SCHOOLS SUCH AS CHEDER AND KANAREK SCHOOLS HAVE JAYS BUSES AND THE SMALLER SCHOOLS HAVE A HODGE PODGE OF DIFFERENT BUS COMPANIES THAT ARE HARD TO DEAL WITH AND WONT PICK UP ON SOME DAYS.

  4. Some people only know how to complain.
    What you don't know is that even mandated busing was almost gone. They were very close to making rules that would not have let the Mosdos use the buses. Vehamevin yovin. Dai lechakima beremiza. The lsta was a hatzola purta to save busing for the rabim to sone extent. Sure it is not perfect,but the alternative was to give the mandated only in the way the aino yehudim determine our children should he bussed and nobody would have anything. You might still get your wish one day. If the Lsta is not renewed after 3 years ,even the mandated people will wish for the Lsta when they see what will happen.

    1. Busing never should have been put on the chopping block in the first place.
      The askanim who let it happen are at fault. They let it happen to protect their own personal interests.

  6. Most mentshliche people are willing to suffer a little so that the rabim can have busing. It is not right to say since I am mandated, I want my busing to be perfect and I don't care if 7000 other parents who live a drop closer to school ,don't get anything and I don't care if that creates gridlock and I don't care if it creates havoc in my child's school with 50 percent of the kids coming late. As long as I get my mandated busing to my door that is all that counts. To most of us ,that is selfish. We need to think a little about the rabim , and if in order to get every body busing , it means that the mandated stops are not as perfect , then that is the mentshliche thing to do. I am very disappointed every time I see a mandated parent complaining that because of the Lsta his stop is a little worse.

    1. Mentchlichkeit goes both ways. The LSTS gave preferences to we'll connected most of and did not make sure that all mandated kids were covered first.
      WHY did A little school such as meoros not get busing together with the parents of the school building they are in.
      A lot of corruption went on here and the "rabim" was shafted for the benefit of a few. Paying high salaries to promote and make the LSTA look good does not excuse the hi jacking of mandated busing that belongs to the parents of these kids.
      Chutzpah that LSTA is servicing Jackson kids while hundreds of Lakewood NANDATED kids still have no buses and carpooling every day. There are ASKANKM who are selfless but than there are those who abuse the rabim for themselves.

  7. It really hurts to see so much hatred and sinah. Everything that is done by a nobody for the tzibur is automatically attacked with awful comments. People who have never spent a minute trying to help the community ,always automatically attack every body and everything in the most nasty tone.

    1. Not true don't put words in people's mouth. When self appointed askanim abuse their power that's what gets to us.
      Look at all parents of mandated kids with no busing, in the eye, tell them with a straight face that the bidding process was fair and square for ALL schools.
      CAN YOU SAY THAT TO THEM?????

    2. It was fair. You live 4 miles away from your school, and there aren't enough students from the school to fill a bus route of that distance. Non-profitable route. Hence the no bussing.

  8. Its amazing that people think that if a not profitable route was not picked up after 3 bids ,that there must be curroption. They are willing that the whole town should go through havoc and gridlock and chaos as long as they get their busing.

    1. its amazing how much your trying to cover up for the backroom deals and shenanigans that went on. Above all you have the audacity to blame and mock parents who sat in traffic all year carpooling and coming late to work.

    End all busing for private schools and we will be in a position to stop this madness once and for all. Do you have any idea how many kids are in public school in Lakewood that don't even live here? We are paying for the busing. Not the state, not the public schools. We are paying for poor service and dangerously long routes on hot buses. Let the schools deal with their own busing , pay a few dollars more a year if you need the busing, and let's get to work on lowering our school tax.

  10. People need to take it easy. Everything should be done to bring as many busing companies into the busing as possible, even if that means there will be a couple of days without busing.
