BOSTON (AP) - Massachusetts' governor on Monday activated the state's National Guard to help with busing students to school as districts across the country struggle to hire enough drivers.

Republican Gov. Charlie Baker said 250 guard personnel will be available to serve as drivers of school transport vans.

They'll start training Tuesday, with some 90 of them to be initially deployed in four diverse cities north of Boston that have dealt with driver shortages- Chelsea, Lawrence, Lowell, and Lynn.
