It’s back-to-school week for students across the country! Most of us would consider this bad news, but the Boston Public School District gives us something to smile and marvel about. The school district went from spending $2,000 a year per student—just on school buses—to trimming a total of $5 million. All done by an algorithm. That’s not all: buses are driving 1 million fewer miles a year and cutting 20,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions per day.
Want to hear about the results and how Boston achieved them? Tune in to this episode of POLICYSMART as we speak with Emma Coleman, Route Fifty’s Assistant Editor!
