SPA expertise used in Forbes article on school choice and transportation.

SPA Professor Todd Ely was quoted in the Forbes article “Why Tech is Prepping to Overhaul School Transportation.”

What’s more, many families can’t afford two tickets a day, and even when cities waive those charges through programs like YouthPass in Portland, Oregon, “the other big thing,” says Todd Ely, director of the Center for Local Government Research and Training at the University of Colorado, Denver, “is just age. So for high schoolers it totally makes sense … but elementary-aged kids [aren’t] going to ride a city bus by themselves.”

The article also used a previous report written by SPA experts, including Dean Paul Teske.
