School bus drivers in Minnesota have really stepped up during the COVID-19 pandemic. Bus drivers have taken on new roles while making sure students get to and from school in a safe manner. Bethany Schubert, vice president of Trobec’s Bus Service says their drivers have been very supportive through all the challenges.

“We’ve asked a lot out of our employees this year from extra cleaning, extra safety precaution. You know our kind of word of the year is going to be adaptability, go with the flow. I think that’s what everyone has done a really good job doing.”

Earlier this week the 35W bridge was lit up in yellow to recognize school bus drivers and assistants. This week is School Bus Driver Appreciation Week.
