First Selectman Jim Marpe and the Board of Education have created a joint Bus Parking Task Force.
Eight high-powered members will explore a variety of school bus parking arrangements. They’ll see if a public or privately owned site can bring down the cost of parking those 8 trillion Dattco buses.
Let’s hope they succeed. The current spot — behind the gas station opposite Playhouse Square — creates a traffic nightmare. (And I’d say that even if I didn’t live in the condos across the street.)
But if the task force really wants to solve a transportation problem, how about attacking the most pressing school bus issue in town:
The fact that every kid in town has a personal bus stop. Even if he or she lives 3 !@#$%^& feet away from another one.
