COLUMBUS, Ohio — With six weeks until the start of the 2023-2024 school year, Columbus City Schools is looking to hire additional bus drivers.
CCS is not alone in the search for bus drivers. A spokesperson for the district called it a “nationwide shortage,” as many are looking to increase their driver pool before the start of school.
A statement from CCS’ Director of Communications Jacqueline Bryant read in part: “We’re still building routes for the start of the school year, and at this point in the summer, we anticipate having enough drivers to launch the school year. Things could still change as we are still in the middle of a bus driver shortage.”
