Some parents in Frazer Park are angry about a new $80 fee for students who ride the school bus.
The El Tejon School District says that works out to 40 cents per student per school day.
The district indicates the fee will help make up a shortfall in state transportation money.
Parents can pay the fee for the entire year or divide it up by semester. Still,l some parents say there's no reason kids can't ride the bus for free.
"Personally, I can't afford it," said parent Scott Parker. "That's an extra $160 that I have to come up with."
District officials declined to talk with us on camera saying they were busy preparing for the new school year.
