No subway? pshhh When I was in High School I remember boarding the express train. Sure there were pole dancers, beggars, muggers, Run DMC wannabes, and Pervs on the train. But that was okay. The feeling as the train reached 65mph between express stops made up for it. It got me to school on time and for free. And the view when walking up from the station wasn't bad either ;). The Twin Towers were to your left, and the Hudson river was to your front.

Bus. I hated every minute of it. It was too easy for other kids to pull my hair or some other form of picking on me.

growing up, we moved a lot because my dad was in the military. I walked to elementary school. Walked, biked, rode the bus and driven by a grandparent or uncle to middle schools. Rode the bus to high schools.

Walked to elementary, mom drove me to middle school, and I drove myself to high school. In my state kids can drive when they are 14 so I was able to drive myself all four years.

There should be an option for more than one. At different points I walked, got a ride from my parents, and rode the bus.

walked most of the time till I started high school then caught the bus as it was about 5 or 6 miles into the school. I went to a small 2 room school up till the 9th grade.

I went to school out of district, so we carpooled to the last bus stop on the route nearest our home and then caught the school bus for the rest ride. Unless, we were late and missed the bus, then we got a car ride all the way in, with an unhappy parent driving...

I went to a private Christian school that didn't run buses. My mom mostly drove me - 10 minutes or so.
Now, I'm married to a teacher and we've lived right beside both schools he's worked at. Works out well now that our oldest is going to school too. Daddy walks them to school every day...earlier than all the other school kids. We don't ever have to worry about our kids being tardy. Still we get up at 5:30 and our oldest gets up at 6:10.
2 minute walk to school :) Teacher Daddy starts school at 7:00 so our kid does too.

I walked from Kindergarden to the first half of Third Grade. Then the second half of Third Grade I carpooled since I had moved to a new house but my mother wanted me to finish of the third grade in the same school. Then I walked 4th through 5th grade to a school that was closer to my new house. Then 6 grade I took the bus to middle school. Last half I that I did a combo between carpool, ride from my mom and bus. 7th through 12th grade. I had moved to a new state. I had to take the bus.

Currently in College. Getting rides from my mom, older sister, and friends. Still learning to drive.

Woah, 27% of people were close enough to walk or bike? I think I would have liked that :) My school was 45 miles away. I took the bus; it took about 1.5 hours to get there, including all of the stops

In the 1960's, I took a small boat across Pearl Harbor to then catch a bus to go to a High School that was some 20 miles away. Since I participated in many extra curricular activities, usually went home after school with a friend who had a car.

The bus was safe when I grew up and if you misbehaved the bus I'd get punished or allowance taken away. Also was not allowed to get driver's license till I got a job and could pay for my own gas. Life lessons that I've noticed have gone to the wayside in some families.

Rode the bus most years. Got tired of getting up at 5am every morning to catch the bus, so got up an hour later and made it to school from walking my senior year.

I lived 8 miles from school so I took the bus. I had 3 different buses I could ride. one got me home 10 minutes after school let out, another took 30 minutes and the last bus took 45 minute after school let out to bring me home. just depend on who I wanted to hang with or how fast I wanted home...

Is there an 'all of the above'? Thinking about it that's precisely what we did. As a kid we changed schools all the time and we did what ever was most convenient at the time. For a couple schools we took the bus, a couple schools my mom drove us, One school we were taken to by a friend of ours since he was a teacher there, I walked to one school, and I was home schooled for a couple of years.

In grammar school we walked. We went as a group with all the kids in the neihborhood. It was about 1 1/2 miles away. Junior High and High School were too far to walk to so we got a school bus
