Enrollment begins for new private Lakota Busing Service

WEST CHESTER, OH (FOX19) -- Phase two of busing cuts in the Lakota school district begin this fall, doubling the amount of student that lose their rides from 3,000 to 6,400, and saving the district nearly $3 million a year; an alum of the district is now offering a service to meet the needs of the community.

"It's for any school in the Lakota school district as well as local private schools, anybody that lost their busing, so freshman buildings, high school students, anyone that needs rides to school in Lakota, we got you covered," said Troy Evans, owner of Lakota Busing Service.

Former Lakota football star and NFL champ Troy Evans has launched the new transportation service, the Lakota Busing Service.  Lakota parents as well as local private school parents can enroll online beginning today.

"This is a service that people need, and I hope they show up and log on an enroll," Evans said. "We're just taking it step by step and really just concentrating on the safety of the children and getting them to and from school."

Prices range from $60 a month for one Lakota student, $110 a month for two Lakota students and $150 dollars a month for three Lakota students; students will also have to pay one time $15 bus pass fee.

Lakota parents like Tracy Ourada who has 9th grader and a 6th grader who both lost busing at two different schools says she's definitely considered signing her kids up.

"That's something I know a lot of parents would be interested in," Ourada said.
