My child's bus ride seems very long even though we live only 5 minutes from school. Can you tell me why?

Elementary bus routes range from 15-60 minutes in length depending on the school and area/miles covered by the route. Although the time from home directly to school may be only 5 minutes, routing requirements sometimes result in a longer ride. The Mead SD transports an average of 65 students per bus with some buses making 25 stops per run.
