More School Buses To Be Added

The bus ride for some of the Rainy River district's youngest learners should be a little shorter next year.

Additional school buses will be put on the road in Fort Frances and Atikokan to reduce the time students in early learning programs are on the bus.

Some are now riding a bus in excess of an hour.

Rainy River District School Board's Heather Campbell says money will come from the existing transportation budget by finding efficiencies in the system.

The extra bus in Atikokan, though, is pending agreement with the Northwest Catholic District School Board.
