Transpo changes concern Mishawaka parents

MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- Some kids headed to school in Mishawaka will have to walk more than a mile just to get to the bus stop.

Transpo cutbacks are impacting school children. A few weeks ago Transpo cut routes to solve its $1.2 million deficit.

Mishawaka schools have limited bus routes and kids depend on public transportation to get to and from class, especially in the bad weather!

Now those routes won't exist and parents say they need them.

"Even if they just, during the school year, ran a couple buses in the morning so the kids can get to school and a couple buses after school so the kids can get home, that'd be fine,” said Robert Hamel.

Parents hope the issue gets resolved before winter when the temps are very cold and walking is harder to do.
