First Student Hiring Bus Drivers

The start of the school year is just over a month away, and Savannah-Chatham school district is working diligently with the new bus company, First Student, to hire more bus drivers before school starts.

"They really have been aggressive, those from the last contract and also with new drivers," said school district COO Otis Brock. "Within the community they've had an aggressive campaign to hire drivers. They've got a great compensation plan. So far, so good."

As of today First Student has hired 246 bus drivers.

School starts Monday, August 14.
