Duval County Public Schools is switching its school bus service to address bus driver shortages and delays for students.
The district had contracted with both Student Transportation of America and Durham School Services for this school year.
Starting next school year, DCPS will add a five-year contract with Durham from August 2024 through July 2029 after the Duval County School Board voted Tuesday. That contract has Durham taking over at least 220 school bus routes, according to the district. However, STA will still manage 452 routes under contract with the district.
An earlier version of this story suggested the school district dropped STA from all routes.
