Relocation Of CPS Bus Stop Raising Concerns Among Rogers Park Parents

Rogers Park parents say they're worried about their children's safety now that the walk to their bus stop is longer after its relocation by the Chicago Public Schools district earlier this year.

Their original bus stop was located at Stephen F. Gale Elementary Community Academy, 1631 W. Jonquil Terrace. Students were reassigned this school year to a bus stop at Eugene Field Elementary School, 7019 N. Ashland Ave.

"We're extremely concerned about our children's safety, having to walk in the dark across busy streets through gang territory," said Rogers Park resident Tiffany Mikell, whose 10-year-old son catches the bus at Field Elementary and attends Disney Magnet Elementary School, 4140 N. Marine Dr.
