THE SCHOOL BUS: A TRANSPORTATION RESOURCE FOR NORTHEASTERN ILLINOIS

The purpose of the study is to explore the possibility of more extensive use of school buses in northeastern Illinois. The study area includes the six counties of Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry, and Will. The study approaches the subject through four steps: (1) putting the school-bus resource in the six-county area into perspective; (2) examining the potential market for additional transit service; (3) identifying the principal constraints in using school buses for non-student transportation purposes; and (4) developing conclusions regarding areas of opportunity for the broader use of school bus equipment.
