Updated Prince William school bus schedules coming Aug. 22

Prince William County Schools Transportation Office reports it is continuing “to refine its bus routes and schedules to ensure the best use of drivers and vehicles to provide predictable, on-time performance.”

Some schedules prepared and sent to parents last Friday may have changed, and PWCS says it will be sending updated schedules by email no later than late Wednesday afternoon, Aug. 22.

Parents are asked to be sure to check this new email for the bus stop and time assigned. “While not all information is different from what parents previously received, the updated email to all households is the best the way to ensure that everyone has the latest and most accurate details available,” a news release said.

Efficiency efforts mean some students may be picked up earlier or arrive home later than last year. That will help buses stay on a predictable schedule and help PWCS better prepare for inevitable and unpredictable driver absences and equipment problems.

Noting “difficulties related to the nationwide driver shortage,” the news release asked for patience and cooperation and said, “We are doing everything possible to make student transportation both safe and efficient.”
