MINNEAPOLIS - Some students in Minneapolis are trading in tires for tennis shoes when it comes to getting to school.

Lyndale Community School is embracing its "walking bus" which started a few years back and has beengrowing ever since.

Every day, the "bus" operates on a set route, picking up more kids along the way. Four different routes operate on Friday.

Lyndale Community School parent Scott Bordon started the walking bus to help the district save money on transporation costs. Bordon says it costs, on average, $250 per student each year to busthem to school. Bordon now speaks to different schools in the Twin Cities to help them start a "walking bus" of their own.
