Palm Beach County school officials hope buses run more smoothly as week two begins

RIVIERA BEACH, Fla. - After the first week of school was filled with bus issues in Palm Beach County, transportation officials are hoping week two runs more smoothly.

Transportation planners met over the weekend to adjust bus routes that were problematic, causing delays and skipped stops.

According to the district's website, parents of children whose routes were changed received phone calls. Kids will also be handed reminder slips at school.

Ten new drivers were also added to the district's bus routes Monday morning. More drivers are in training and expected to be added to the mix in the weeks to come.

District officials said in addition to problematic bus routes, a shortage of drivers has contributed to the county's issues.
