The fare card for students was introduced in The change also limited the number of rides to two per day, i. We have heard from children, parents and program directors that this policy change is hurting our kids. It isn't entirely clear what triggered the change since both, the school system and the MTA claim that they by no means intended to curtail after school activities or limit the presence of students on buses after 6pm.
Even before the recent change there had been an agreement for students with activities on weekends or after 8pm.

Students on transit buses: An urban solution The issue of students on transit buses is not limited to Baltimore.
It is common in urban transit systems where schools cannot afford a separate school bus system and where more yellow school buses would just make congestion worse. The benefit of the shared public bus is that the school system saves money by not having to maintain and operate a separate bus fleet or pay subcontractors for that and that fewer vehicles crowd the streets.
Less tangible benefits include that students experience transit at an early age which reduces the threshold fear many adults have vis-a-vis transit.

Transit is an important pass to education and worth every penny that it costs. Given that the school system under the new Superintendent Dr. Sonja Santelises and the MTA are intent on solving the problem and that transit buses are running anyway, this may well be a tempest in the teapot.
The main question seems to be how many trips students should be able to make with their pass and who should pay for those above two, especially for after school trips. Mary Pat Clarke, well versed in Council hearings, quickly zeroed in on the question whether these numbers actually present any real cost, given that the buses run anyway.
Councilman Ryan Dorsey likened it to taking his neighbor to the grocery store on the otherwise vacant passenger seat of his car. From a Minneapolis student bus pass survey Chair Cohen asked if public transportation shouldn't emphasize the public interest just like public education.Fares and Passes.
