During the past decade, school districts across the state have cut bus routes to save money, meaning getting to and from school is a much bigger chore.

A bill that passed the state Senate aims to free up local tax dollars to help fill the transportation void in many school districts.

But StateImpact Indiana’s Claire McInerny reports the bill won’t solve bigger funding problems.
