boom and bus [bust] cycle


Senior Member
"Growth, especially in Wake, is a juggernaut not easily deterred. It can, however, be channeled in ways that have less impact on the schools. You've heard it from us before--less sprawl, compact development, getting developers to provide land for schools, and a wider mix of housing types and costs in exchange for zoning approvals. Until then, Wake is doomed to repeat the cycle of boom and bus."

What does a "boom and bus cycle" mean?

Thank you very much!
