Wake County school board member Debra Goldman says that staff plans to put 25 additional buses on the road Tuesday, following the Labor Day holiday, to address complaints about bus service.
School officials aren't, at the moment, confirming the figure cited by Goldman, but they acknowledge that a plan is being worked on by the transportation staff. Goldman said Superintendent Tony Tata is meeting today with the transportation staff and going over every bus route as part of the new plan.
Goldman says that the board agreed earlier this year to take 27 buses off the road and staff wound up removing an additional 25 vehicles. She said that staff was bringing back those 25 extra buses.
It wasn't immediately clear if the figure cited by Goldman includes the four buses that Tata said Tuesday was being put back in service.
