BREA : Bus Fees Imposed by School Trustees

Trustees of the Brea-Olinda Unified School District have imposed fees for all students who ride school buses.

Beginning in the fall, families will be charged a maximum of $300 per year--$150 for the first student rider, $100 for the second and $50 for the third. The cost will average less than $1 a day, school board members said.

Students who qualify for free or reduced lunches will be eligible for free bus rides, Assistant Supt. Peter J. Boothroyd said.

District officials expect to gain about $72,000 in revenue from bus fees and the money will be used to help recover the cost of student transportation.
