This panel will discuss the potential impact of student transportation policy on school choice and student outcomes. The panelists will present an overview of transportation policy in five choice-rich cities, and provide a special focus on the effects of student transportation in New York City and Denver. The panel will explore the possibility that context-specific policy lessons can be applied more broadly across cities.
