Bus driver shortage leads to Stillwater district suing provider, St. Paul making changes

St. Paul ready to ask some high-schoolers to take Metro Transit

Minneapolis Public Schools are facing a bus driver shortage like other districts such as Stillwater, which sued its provider for breach of contract because it cannot cover the bus routes.

The Stillwater school district is suing the company that provides bus transportation for being as much as an hour late on routes since middle- and high-school students started last week.

And with elementary schools starting Tuesday and more than a dozen bus routes being canceled, already-frazzled parents in the district are scrambling to figure how to get their kids to school.

Stillwater's COVID-caused busing mess has been echoing across the state and nation.
