Bus Driver Shortage
Buncombe County Schools put the wheels in motion to hire more bus drivers.
Transportation Director Joe Hough is looking to hire about five more. He says the void is typical at the beginning of the school year when employees take other positions in the system.
According to Hough, the pay for bus drivers in Buncombe County is among the highest in the mountains at $11.72 per hour. Substitute drivers are also needed. Part time hours behind the wheel sometimes leads to more work in the school system.
