Lynchburg City Schools Approves School Bus Driver Bonuses

Lynchburg, VA- Some Lynchburg City School bus drivers are getting a little extra this year.

The school board approved bonuses to attract new bus drivers and retain current ones. Any driver that is currently working with the school system and stays until December will get a $300 bonus. If the bus drivers stay until May, they'll get an additional $500.

School officials reviewed salaries for Lynchburg bus drivers, and found they just weren't getting paid as well as the drivers in other school divisions.
