Local school bus drivers upset over budget cuts
NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. (WSVN) -- South Florida school bus drivers are mad as the district plans to out-source transportation as a means to cut costs.
Bus drivers are coming together to protest as the school district looks to privatizing its fleet of school buses and transportation employees.
The board wants the district to explore whether money can be saved through other options such as altering its existing busing system.
Miami-Dade school buses transport more than 60,000 students. The system costs about $69 million.
