Schools only bus system in Menlo Park

Original post made by Alex Green on Oct 31, 2007

Does anyone know more about the "schools only" VTA bus system that runs in Menlo Park? I have heard that VTA busses operate between the schools so that kids can walk to their neighborhood elementary school and hop a bus to middle school. I think they have to pay for this like they would a regular city bus, but the benefit is that it seem safer for kids. I would love to learm more about this. Is seems like a sensible way to cut down on school traffic and encourage kids to find safe alternatives cars.
