Primary and secondary school students in Ondo State have expressed excitement as shuttle buses resume operation in the state.

Ondo State Government on Monday reintroduced the free school shuttle buses to ease the transportation problem of students in the state as the 2023-2024 academic session.

 The step was said to be part of the palliative packages of the government to cushion the effects of fuel subsidy removal.

The parents and students who spoke with The Hope appreciated the government for listening to their cry for the shuttle buses to return to operation in the state.

One of the parents, Mr Tunde Opaleye said, “we are happy something has been done. We have been clamouring for it. We thank God that the government listened to our cry.”

  “I am very happy. My daddy and mummy are also pleased that the free buses are back. I live at Ondo Road, Adebowale, and I spend about N1,500 to go and come back from school daily.

“So, I am delighted that the free buses are back because since things became challenging, students have been looking for free rides to take them to school and back.

“This is very dangerous as it exposes us to kidnapping and molestation. It is a good one and we beg the government to sustain the free buses for us,” a student, Oluwayemi Oluwasekemi, said excitedly.

Students and parents who spoke with The Hope also appealed to the government to ensure the free shuttle buses are sustained.
