Yellow buses are the way forward

David Blunkett's Yellow Bus commission may be sponsored by one the biggest bus companies. But its report is nevertheless spot on in recommending more dedicated school buses. The government, in the 2006 education act, has extended the rights of children to free school transport, linking those rights more to school choice than before. For good environmental and safety reasons, it should go further and encourage the development of far more dedicated buses - yellow or otherwise - for youngsters. Nobody would mourn the death of the school run.
