Poll: Does this historical school bus rule need an overhaul?

Nicola Brennan-Tupara Reporter from Waikato Times

Hi neighbours,
A school bus rule from 1904 that takes $60 a week out of a Waikato family's pocket needs to change, politicians say.
The Ministry's 115-year-old rule states school bus rides are only free for primary school children who live further than 3.2km away.
The rules also allow school buses not to pick up children who live within 3.2km.

So we want to know, does this historic bus rule need to change?
