G0 Riteway Transportation Group excited for new opportunity with La Crosse School District
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — The School District of La Crosse new bus company is excited to start its new partnership.
The district hired the local company GO Riteway Transportation Group to take over bussing duties, starting June 30th.
It comes after a bumpy start the school year with the district’s current bus provider First Student Bus Company. First Student drew complaints from parents after a new bus route system was put in place, which led to delays and missed stops.
The safety director for the new company says he’s getting a jump start on the school year to prevent any problems.
“We’re looking to get prepared for the first day of school so that we can make it as smoothly and efficiently as possible for everybody. I know that last year didn’t go off so well, and we’re going to work very hard to avoid that from happening again this year,” said David Butcher.
The contract between Go Riteway and the district will last for 10 years.
