To make up the difference, several transportation managers are out driving the buses, while other managers remain inside the building dispatching buses to routes.

Assistant Director of Transportation Stan McKinzie said the district is looking for reliable drivers, and he said the job has the best perks, since drivers are the first face students see in the morning.
