In the process of going to Douglasville yesterday I approached the old Bill Arp Elementary School and watched as one bus was stopped in my lane to let two out of the Bill Arp bus barn.  I wasn’t following them (I swear–it’s the same route I use to go to town) but they drove on Hwy 5, down Central Church, down Stewart Mill Road, and turned left onto Chapel Hill Road…I assumed they were going to DCHS to pick up students.  They also averaged about 35-40mph the entire way.  Isn’t this a HUGE waste of gas, having to go from the former Bill Arp Elementary to DCHS, then do their route, then go back to BAES?  Is the bus barn so overcrowded with buses that they can’t park there?
