LSTA Raises Fee for Courtesy Busing to $260

Parents of children who receive courtesy busing from the LSTA are now being charged $260, up from $180, for the upcoming school year, unless they opted-out of busing by noon Monday.

The LSTA gave schools and parents exceedingly short notice of the fee hike, leaving many scrambling to find alternative options – most of which didn’t pan out in time to beat the 12 pm deadline.

With the higher fee in place, and coupled with rising tuition costs, pressure is now growing on Lakewood Township to pay for private school student’s courtesy busing. Using taxpayer money, the Township already pays for courtesy busing for public school students.
