Parents outraged MCS cancelled bus routes with 1 week notice

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Memphis City Schools students head back to school Monday, and many will be walking there after the district cancelled their bus routes.
  
Roughly 10,000 students have been left looking for alternate routes to school after MCS cancelled 40 percent of their bus routes because of huge budget cuts.
  
Many parents say they're outraged they found out about that change less than one week before the first day of school.   

"If they make cuts, they have to do what they have to do. But it would have been nice to know ahead of time," said parent Kimberly Reed.

Now, parents are also concerned about their children having to cross busy city streets to get to class.

Action News 5 will bring you live coverage of the bus route backlash starting at 5:00 a.m. Monday.
