Thousands of students in Chatham County ride the school bus, but many others will walk to school.
A new pilot program kicks off on the west side of Savannah called “The Walking School Bus.” In this program an escort will provide safety support for children at Hodge Elementary.
The two walking school bus routes to Hodge are Bulloch and Clinch Streets. The Bulloch street walkers will begin at West 40th Street at 7:10 a.m. and arrive at Hodge a half hour later.
At Clinch Street, the walking bus departs at 7:15 and will arrive at the school at 7:40.
