Seattle parents get kids to school amid suspended bus routes


October 20, 2021

SEATTLE (AP) — Thousands of Seattle families scrambled to get children to and from school Monday after Seattle Public Schools suspended 142 bus routes.

School officials said the cutbacks announced Friday are necessary because of a national bus driver shortage and because some drivers are not getting the mandated COVID-19 vaccine, The Seattle Times reported.

Of the 18,000 students eligible for bus rides, about 6,740 could be affected, although the actual number could be lower — about 3,000 to 4,000 students, said Fred Podesta, assistant superintendent of operations.
