YORK COUNTY, SC (WBTV) - There is a major problem happening in York County School District #1. Old buses are breaking down and causing dozens of students to be late for class.
The problem has been occurring since the beginning of the school year.
"That causes delays," Transportation Supervisor Richard Podmore said. "We have to combine routes. Double up routes. Wait for buses."
Podmore says some buses even break down on the side of the road with students on them. The school district has even set up a transportation hotline for parents so they can call and check the status of their children.
On Wednesday the recording told parents that York Comprehensive High school bus #94 was running up to 30 minutes late.
