LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - The new school year is a week old in La Crosse, and the district's bus company says things are going much more smoothly than they have in years past.
Go Riteway is in its second year running the buses for the district.
They say after some bumps in the road during the start of their first year, the first few days of this school year saw far fewer problems.
Operations manager Michael Wohlfert says that's because most of the routes from last year weren't changed and staff worked hard throughout the summer to keep parents up to date.
"The team did a lot of hard work getting everybody prepared, making sure we had the right students on the right routes, making sure we communicated with mom and dad if you know where the pickups and drop-offs (are), and if we weren't sure we'd double-check our double checks," said Wohlfert.
Go Riteway says they run between 45 and 50 routes for the La Crosse School District, carrying about 3000 kids per day.
