Cass County Bus Driver Shortage Described As “Worst Ever”

(Cass County, ND) — Several North Dakota school districts have dealt with bus driver shortages this year, and school officials are describing the driver shortage in northern Cass County as the worst they’ve seen. Superintendent Cory Steiner says the federal requirements for bus drivers, the inconvenient hours, and the stress of the job is making it hard to find new hires for the job. The local school district has tried increasing driver pay, getting teachers and retired bus drivers to help out with routes, and even paying parents to drive their kids to school. Steiner is encouraging community members to come forward with ideas for solutions.
