May 2, 2023

A Maryland Office of the Inspector General for Education report released on Monday found that Baltimore City Public Schools paid as much as $631,000 over three years to a cab company for rides to school that students may never have taken. Investigators for the education inspector general’s office compared records from Yellow Cab — which is now known as zTrip, according to the report — with city school attendance records and found that between the 2018-19 school year and the 2021-22 school year, there were 1,115 students and 3,900 instances when the students had not been in school when the taxi company said they were transported there.
