Yonkers restores school bus service

The Yonkers school district is restoring bus service to children who live a mile and a half away from their schools.

As a result of the budget crisis the district pushed the distance a child could get a bus to two miles.

A spokesperson from the school district says a 2-mile minimum would have been a hardship for families.

The money to pay for the busing will come from a fund earmarked for technology and textbooks.
