Similar to many school districts around the area, Gahanna-Jefferson Public Schools is facing a bus driver shortage. We are aware that some routes have been off-schedule over the past several weeks.

We want to thank all of our families for their patience and grace as our bus drivers are working hard to cover routes and double-up on routes so that our students can be transported to and from school safely. We understand that this can be frustrating and a disruption to a family’s schedule, so thank you for allowing us the time to work through this situation. As we are working through this, we are making every effort to communicate about a delayed bus via email to parents.

Additionally, due to splitting and doubling-up on routes, the Here Comes the Bus app may not be accurate at times for your child’s route.

GJPS is working through several action steps to increase our amount of available bus drivers. The district is continuing to work on solving this situation so that it will no longer cause inconvenience to our families.
