The lower Westchester County bus to Ripp is an absolute life saver! Instead of a 20-minute drive to school, it is a quick 5-minute hop to the bus stop, where my daughter bounds out of my car and onto the bus, eager to say hello to our amazing bus driver, Nat, and all her bus friends. They have a close-knit bus community. Even on days when I am heading to campus anyway, my child insists on being dropped at the bus stop on the way. She does not want to miss her bus time!
