First Student Now Has a Surplus of Drivers for Unit 5 Schools
A few months after a driver shortage, there are now more than enough bus drivers to cover routes at Unit 5 schools. Unit 5 struggled with transportation issues during the first few weeks of school, including overcrowding and late buses. Part of those issues were attributed to a shortage of drivers. There are now 145 drivers available to cover 122 routes with several more drivers in training.
