BEDFORD-STUYVESANT - A special needs student in Bed-Stuy who's been stuck at home because of the bus strike will be able to attend class again, thanks to a cab service and News 12 Brooklyn.

Cassia Hill's son Ahmed, who's autistic, has been stuck at home for three weeks because of the bus strike, as he has no transportation to take him to his school in Coney Island. After featuring the family's story during a newscast, News 12 contacted the Department of Education (DOE).

Hill says the DOE will now pay for cab service to take her son to and from school until the strike ends.
