The school where Angela DeMarco works is about 5 miles from her house.
To get to there, DeMarco walks 15 minutes from her St. Petersburg home to a bus stop at Tyrone Square Mall. Then it's a 15-minute bus ride to the school in Pinellas Park -- not counting the time DeMarco waits for the bus to actually show up.
"Sometimes it's an hour wait. Sometimes it's 15 minutes," said DeMarco, a special education teacher. "It all depends on traffic."
