HCPSS Reaches Agreement with Local Transportation Contractors

August 17th, 2023

The Howard County Public School System (HCPSS) has reached an agreement with local transportation contractors to continue providing bus service to HCPSS. This agreement is an amicable resolution of the respective concerns about the contract issues raised in the contractors’ withdrawn lawsuit and allows all parties to move forward in support of our joint mission of meeting the transportation needs of Howard County’s students.

The local contractors who have served Howard County for many years are an important part of the school system’s goal of ensuring operations are responsive and efficient. This agreement comes amid changes in school start times and will help ensure all necessary transportation routes are covered.
