New York school bus costs called the first in line (Times Union)

From Citizens Budget Commission:

December 19, 2012 – New York has the highest school transportation costs in the country, a new study has found, and is rare in using public money to bus students to private and parochial schools. As it does with so many other areas of school spending, New York state leads the nation in the cost to transport its pupils, according to a new report from the Citizens Budget Commission, a nonpartisan group that advocates for change in New York spending. School districts in the state spend $1,141 per student on transportation, which is 149 percent more than the national average of $459.
