The Indian River School District said it is moving ahead with plans to hand the school bus driver shortage.

WBOC reports that Superintendent Mark Steele said the district has been using spare buses to cover four of the district’s routes because one of their contractors lost six its drivers.

The loss affected 240 students.

The television station reported that three of the routes are in Georgetown while the other is in East Millsboro.

The district’s transportation analyst Tyler Bryan said that the names of those covering the route should be confirmed shortly and parents will be notified of any changes in the schedules.
