I was walking about the same distance starting in like 2nd grade by myself- my mom walked me or dropped me off prior to that. Other than the odd field trip, I never saw the inside of a bus until the 7th grade. Nowadays, though, it seems like a big deal if a child walks any further than the curb closest to the front door of the school...
