School Busing For a New Generation

Posted on July 19, 2006 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

TAMPA BAY, FLA. — Dream Limousine is offering students an alternative to the old, yellow school bus: a shiny, black limousine. The company will shuttle teenagers to school in a luxury Ford Excursion, complete with a flat-screen television, DVD player, mini-bar, and laptop hookups.

Dream Limousine Owners Jake and Debbie Piascik said they would charge $2 to $3 per mile for each student. Although some parents are against this, the majority find it to be a helpful time-saver.

Anthony Rodnite, owner of Sunshine Limousine in Tampa, Fla., said he has been taking students from their homes to school for the past five years. He shuttles nine students a year, charging $4,000 per month for the 170-mile trip.
