Agreed. It is a total waste of time for long journey ride...
But for my case, already choose the nearest school but still must wake up at 5.30am as sch bus arrived at 6am... I did think of next yr, stop sch bus, personally send DS1 in morning, and let him take public transport back himself... the challenge now I faced is we intend to transfer DS2 over, and I'm not comfortable having a P3 and P5 taking public transport back on their own... sigh... seems like must stuck with sch bus for time being.
Take 1 way school bus, ie only the home journey so you can still send them to school and they can sleep a little more. That's what we do. 1 way school bus cost almost same as 2 ways but sleep more important lah.
