My son goes to a private school. For a few months, they had no substitute bus drivers. We were informed that if a bus driver called in, one bus route would be dropped and those on that route would be called in the morning or after noon. While an inconvenience to those on that particular route, it seems to be a safer option than cramming too many kids on a bus.
Safer, yes, but that wouldn't work in a public school. Some public school parents don't have cars, so without safe, reliable school busses the kids won't get to school.
