Not in Service: Why Public Transit Must Aim to Serve Students
In The Fund for Educational Excellence's new report, Not in Service: Why Public Transit Must Aim to Serve Students, they share 274 current Batlimore City Schools middle and high school students about their experiences with public transportation in Baltimore. Through these interviews, a picture emerges of a transportation system that doesn’t connect homes and schools, featuring long commutes, unreliable service, and exposure to violence and harassment. The challenges students face going to and from school summon a set of problems that have disproportionately impacted Black and Brown communities for decades.
