Extremely Low HCPSS School Bus Utilization Rate for one school

The average ridership per bus is 24.32% on 10 school buses for a specif school. This is the rate I computed from data that some parents shared with me. The data was collected by bus drivers. Assuming the bus is a 72-seat bus. So I can see there is a potential and need to increase our school bus utilization rate. This can partially address the later high school start time initiative which I strong support.

A school by school bus utilizatiom rate will be more helpful. I will request those data from HCPSS and have a look.

  1. 72 seats is too high an assumption. Three students per seat in grades K-6 but only 2 per seat in grades 7-12. https://www.schoolbusinfo.com/faq.asp
