(Fargo, ND) -- A change in bus policy is good news for some students at Moorhead High School.

After previously announcing 5 bus routes serving high school students will be canceled this fall because of a driver shortage, that will no longer be the case.

A district representative says the district has signed a contract with a new transportation vendor, that will be able to provide service for all existing routes. 

On August 1st, the district announced 5 routes would be canceled for the fall semester.

“We are thrilled to be able to minimize the impact of the continued bus driver shortage on our Moorhead Area Public School students and their families with this partnership. The transportation team continues to monitor the situation and try to provide the best possible service to our families in this difficult staffing environment,” said Steve Moore, Operations and Emergency Management Executive Director.

“We recognize that there is continual risk of changes throughout the year, but we believe that this announcement puts us in a stronger position starting the school year.”
