>>State Looking To Address School Bus Driver Shortage
(Harrisburg, PA) -- The state is boosting its efforts to address the current bus driver shortage impacting Pennsylvania schools. More than two thousand school bus drivers are needed statewide. Officials say our students need reliable transportation to be able to continue in-person instruction, our parents need peace of mind and schools need assistance. To try and help, officials sent out letters to over 300-thousand individuals across the state with Commercial Driver's Licenses to see if they're interested in driving for schools. The Department of Transportation has also temporarily opened CDL skills testing on Mondays for four weeks.
