Jackson Public School Transportation Study

Over 4,100 students in the Jackson Public Schools rely on school buses to get to school.  Of these students a significant number of them are within a reasonable walking distance to school and could potentially walk to school on daily basis. This study looks at how many student could walk to school and what the potential cost saving would be for the school district.

Our Task

This project identifies which students could reasonably be required to walk to school based on existing and potential conditions.  Using GIS, the study looks at how a significant number of students could potentially walk to school.  The study also looks at the cost of infrastructure  changes and the potential transportation savings for the school district.
