RE: Bus Transportation for Edison High School – Melbloum Lane
We would like to bring to your attention a matter that has been of concern since the community was established in 2004. This is regarding bus transportation to Edison High School for students residing on Melbloum Lane. There are approximately ten high school students living on Melbloum Lane that require transportation to Edison High School. This number will double come September.
The bus stops that our children have been assigned to are NOT optimal and pose safety hazards as they require very long unattended walks (upward of 0.7 miles in some cases). The only way that these walking distances can be shortened would require the students to cut through others' properties and/or walk through wooded areas. It should go without saying that these are unsafe conditions, especially when conditions are dark, snowy, or icy.
As a neighborhood established now for over thirteen solid years with approximately eighty homes, we strongly feel that there should be a bus stop on our street, Melbloum Lane. We request that Melboum Lane proper be assigned to a bus route. We feel that this is the best option for the safety of our children.
This letter is endorsed and signed by the residents of Melbloum Lane.
Thank you for your attention to this matter. For any questions, you may contact:
