Ohio dad helps bus shortage by taking kids to school in his limo

A father who lives in Ohio has decided to do his part to help with the statewide bus shortage. After his kids had to miss almost a whole week at school, the man offered his limo to take kids to school all over the Columbus area.

What are the details?

Sean Rogers Jr. said his kids had to miss school for almost a week because of bus shortage issues. When he realized the bus wasn’t going to show up, the father decided to take matters into his own hands and offered his limo services to all kids living in the area, according to Sunnyskyz.

“Attention: starting next week, I will go out and help these Columbus city buses get our kids to school; my kids and others have missed almost a week of school due to their bus not showing up. I’ll be traveling all over Columbus to drop kids off at school. Yes, in the limo, if it’s ok with parents. I’d rather see them late to school than out here in the streets. Contact me and help me help our kids,” he wrote.

Several parents got in touch with the man, particularly those living in the Linden neighborhood where the father has his home.

On the first day, the man took 25 kids to school, as he shared with ABC 6. The next day, 46 kids were waiting for their limo ride to school.

“Everybody always wants to say ‘let’s help the community, let’s stop this violence’ that type of stuff, but I feel a big step of stopping the violence is getting kids to school instead of letting them skip school and get into trouble,” Rogers Jr. said for the outlet.

What do you think of his idea? Would you kids love to get to school in a limo?
