CPS, SORTA Joint Statement on High School Transportation

August 11, 2021

SORTA and CPS board representatives and top executives met today to discuss the next steps for high school transportation. Due to a bus driver shortage, XTRA routes will not be restored prior to the start of school. However, both organizations are committed to student safety. As a result, a working group will be pulled together to conduct a school-by-school review and consider adjustments that may need to be made before August 19.
