Pupil Transportation in Texas
MetadataShow full item record
System characteristics and operating costs of 331 school district transportation systems in the state of Texas are described and analyzed. This data is used to derive a model to predict the maintenance and operation: costs of pupil transportation. The model takes the form of a simple loglinear equation which predicts costs per pupil transported from the linear density (pupils per route mile) of the transportation network. This model, along with procedures for estimating an annual bus replacement allowance, is incorporated into a formula for allocating state monies to local school districts for pupil transportation. This method of allocating funds is evaluated relative to existing approaches in Texas and other states, and recommendations are made for state legislation.
