Our Children Matter! Provide Safer Bus Stops!

This petition made change with 116 supporters!

In Wendell, the neighborhoods of Stewart's Ridge and The Vineyard's of Tuscan currently share two bus stops. Many neighborhood children do not use the public school transportation available because of safety issues. Unfortunately, many families in our neighborhood do not have that option. We are requesting two additional stops get added on the already existing route in order to protect the elementary school students and keep them out of harms way.

There is a home daycare in Stewart's Ridge, currently, the owner has to walk the entire class down an unsafe road to stand beside the road with no available sidewalk, broken street lamps, and an obstructed stop sign (pictured) in order to put a kindergartener on the bus. The neighborhood doesn't have any sidewalks and there is a posted speed limit of 35mph which many people exceed. In order to get to the stop located at Shawan Rd and Chestnut Ridge students are walking down a blind curve with no street lamps and a stop sign located behind overgrown bushes.

We are requesting two additional stops. These two stops are already on the path driven daily by the bus. The additional stops would add zero extra miles and cost zero extra dollars. This simple request would protect our neighborhood children, as well as the children in the care of Ms. Katie's House LLC.

Stop 1. Ms. Katie's House LLC on Shawan Rd

Stop 2. Intersection of Hunt Valley Trail and Chestnut Ridge
