Stanford to add bus route
STANFORD - Students feeling the pinch on Stanford Elementary bus routes will soon have more breathing room, after the school board voted Thursday to give the school an additional bus.
Principal Tim Godbey said the current 10 routes are squeezing students three to a seat, which gives them each about a foot of space. While not an issue for elementary students, larger students being shuttled to the middle and high schools are crammed together.
The process of posting the route and hiring a new driver is expected to be completed after the new year.
