A combining of afternoon school bus routes, prompted by a shortage of drivers, started last week and continued through Thursday for Milton School District students, according to a post on the district’s Facebook page.

Milton students on routes 134 (West), 145 (East), 146 (East), 110, 111 and 113 (Northside) were arriving home later than their usual time.

The Facebook post said parents should check their district email for more details.

On Jan. 3, the district informed parents via email that three elementary and three intermediate school afternoon bus routes were being combined temporarily.
