Tuesday night, the school board of Pueblo County School District 70 decided to outsource the operation of their school buses. The vote, held at Pueblo West High School, was unanimous, 4-0 (board member David Valdez was absent).
The decision means the district will be working with a a private company for bus transportation. That company's name is First Student.
The district plans to sell its buses to the company, allowing the district to save on maintenance costs. It could save the school district up to $400,000.
