Yup, my friends and I started taking the City Bus in Grade 2 because the school stopped providing a School Bus to our area. 3 of us had Single Mother's, True Deadbeat Dad's, No Child Support. Our Mom's bought us the Bus Passes, no complaints.

By Grade 6 we were walking the 35 minutes.
Then in High School, we were walking an Hour.

But it just doesn't seem to be like that today with kids.....

In my opinion there is little chance that anyone would consider a bus pass section 7. There is nothing special or extraordinary about it and it isn't related to medical needs. It's obviously child support related.

For the love of god, nearly an hour walk requires a bus. And a bus requires money. Pay half the damn bus pass already! Jesus.

Does that argument work with food as well?

Wouldn't $12,000 a year in child support cover a $500 bus pass?

How greedy!

edited: mother also makes the same income so should be contributing $12,000/yr in "child support" she has a total of $24,000 to spend on the kids, she shouldn't be asking for $250 for a bus pass.

Yes, in this particular situation (I Know MANY situations are not like this one!) But In This Particular Situation....It really is "Can the Mother not provide anything herself for her kids??"

"Why can't she afford a $55 bus pass out of $1,000, CCTB, $65,000 income herself, Common-law Partner-Second Household income??"

my understanding if the child is in the school boundary then the school will provide busing where appropriate. Why does the child require a bus pass?
