Study: School bus privatization costly
Pittsburgh Business Times
A study from a Harrisburg-based policy group casts doubt on whether privatizing school bus operations in Pennsylvania would save any money.
Essential Public Radio reports on a study released by the Keystone Research Center that said it would cost school districts more if they went with private operators than if they kept their own school district transportation, at least in the long term.
Seventy-two percent of all school transportation in Pennsylvania is with contractors, according to Essential Public Radio.
