Agoura Hills youths had an appetite for the beach this summer.
But many youngsters who flocked aboard city-sponsored beach buses apparently did not have an appetite for the food they carried, according to city officials.
Food fights aboard the chartered buses marred the low-cost transportation service that ended its 2 1/2-month run on Aug. 30, city officials said Wednesday.
The incidents have given officials food for thought--and they're thinking about canceling next summer's beach bus.
"The rowdyism very well could endanger the program next year," Agoura Hills City Manager Michael Huse said.
Food flinging got so far out of hand at one point that the city ordered bus drivers to read warning statements at the beginning of each of the four daily round trips, Huse said.
