Abstract

The Millbury Public School System is examining the feasibility of later school start times for their adolescent students. Busing transportation is frequently cited as the major logistical set back in this change. This study analyzes four different potential transportation strategies to help guide informed decision making when determining busing during this district wide adjustment. The four options identified were: swapping start times among schools, pushing all start times later, reducing the number of iterations a bus takes, and purchasing additional buses to allow the high school to start at the same time as another school.
