It doesn’t look like the afternoon commute home for Wake County students went as well as the morning commute to school.
“Typical opening-day challenges resulted in some delays at the end of the school day,” Wake said in a press release early Monday evening. “Transportation officials said most of the afternoon delays should be resolved this week as drivers and students get used to the new routines.”
Overall, Wake said in their update on afternoon service that “the first day of bus service went smoothly today for most of the 75,000 Wake County Public School System riders.”
Contrast that with the wording from an earlier press release on the Monday morning commute, which said that “the overwhelming majority of buses arrived on time, and more than 99% of buses arrived within 15 minutes of the bell.”
