School bus service to resume in Gloversville and Johnstown

October 6, 2021 | Filed in Archive

With the majority of its employees out of quarantine, the HFM BOCES Regional Transportation Service is planning to resume bus service for K-12 students in Gloversville and Johnstown on Thursday, Oct. 7.

While bus service will resume, the Regional Transportation Service is still dealing with a shortage of drivers and other staff, and recruitment efforts continue.

The Regional Transportation Service will alert parents that depending on staffing levels buses may be delayed on some days.

“We are currently doing all that we can to ensure on-time service, and we appreciate the patience and understanding of our families and staff,” said HFM BOCES District Superintendent David Ziskin. “We appreciate the situation the temporary suspension of service put families in, and we’re moving forward with hiring more staff. The national bus driver shortage and the ongoing possibility of quarantines present huge challenges for us but we are making progress.”

During the last few days HFM BOCES has hired two new drivers and expects to be hiring more soon. HFM still has five driver positions available.

HFM BOCES is offering free training for individuals interested in becoming bus drivers and aides.
