Wow, we haven't even had school buses at all for years, much less ones that drop you off at home.

In MA, towns are required to provide school buses. In towns that are not regionalized, the town can now charge a fee for this, but in towns that are regionalized such as mine (and I think the OP also lives in a region), there cannot be a separate fee for bus usage.

The OP lives in a fairly rural area similar to me, and so we don't have things like sidewalks, and the buses here pretty much stop at each house because they are so far apart. They definitely do that for all the kindergarteners, even if they happen to live on a street like mine that does have sidewalks, but there are only 2 or 3 places in my town that have sidewalks.

I know that the more populated cities and towns have bus stops, but we don't have that here because it is not safe for the kids.
