Medina, Ohio (AP) -- Busing cuts mean thousands of students in one Ohio district have had to find new ways of getting to school after the holidays.

As of Monday, the Medina schools have reduced bus service to the state minimum.

Rides for high school students have been eliminated, and in the lower grades only students living more than two miles from school are being bused.

The district said in a newsletter that the changes would affect more than 4,000 students.

The school system south of Cleveland has been forced to cut costs after voters in November rejected an operating levy for the district.

Superintendent Randy Stepp says the reduction in busing should save $400,000 this year.

Police prepared for an increase in traffic around schools.
