I think that it would also be a good idea if CTA and CPS combine forces and provide transportation passes for high school students to ensure they have a way to and from school. I added up that I will pay close to $800 a year for my child to go and come from school. Something similar to what CTA has going on with the colleges would be a great Idea. Parents have to pay a registration fee every year for their child to start school why not add $75 to that fee and give the children a pass that they use the whole school year. This will also assist with the longer school day because it will ensure that no matter what time the child gets out of school they can ride the bus.
