“Students who fall into that gap and cannot be lifted were notified by a robocall last week, and students who do have a lift would have received a mailer in the mail,” said Megan Patton, transportation director for Pittsburgh Public Schools.
According to the district, they will receive three additional buses from the Pittsburgh Transportation Group later this month.
