Wolf Administration Continues Work to Address Bus Driver Shortage; Encourages Drivers to Apply

PennDOT Deputy Secretary Kurt Myers and Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) Secretary Dr. Noe Ortega today joined the Pennsylvania School Bus Association to encourage interested individuals to obtain Commercial Driver's License to address bus driver shortage in Pennsylvania.

"We want to do our part to encourage those looking for employment or supplemental income to consider obtaining a school bus endorsement to help get our children to school. That's the critical part of all of this," said PennDOT Deputy Secretary Myers. "We believe these efforts will help to ensure the safe and effective transportation of our commonwealth students."
