There is a dire need for a school bus for the following reasons: 1. The public transport used at the present time charges very high fares. 2. The teachers’ salaries are very low and there is no travel allowance. 3. The public transport is very unreliable and rarely turns up on time. 4. The teachers have to make their own way to the bus station every morning and the drop off points are a few miles away from their places of work. Because of this they have to walk no matter what ever the weather conditions. 5. There are many students, who attend these schools and colleges, who live en route, will also benefit from this facility.
