On Monday, the Youngstown City School District sent a memo is considering discontinuing all high school transportation and is looking to have students to use the WRTA to get to and from school.
The district, in an email, stated that YCSD "is legally responsible for transporting all eligible students to the district, community, or chartered nonpublic schools where they are enrolled. This transport totals 36 schools, including 14 of our own buildings. With the ever-growing bus shortages and the recent $2 million withholding penalty because of the busing challenges, the district and board of education are exploring alternatives for transportation."
The statement said that any final decision will be made by the board.
