(From The Guardian) Officials from New York City Public Schools are bracing for a potential school bus driver strike as negotiations continue between Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1181-1061 and school bus contractors. If the strike does occur, NYC Public Schools has established a contingency plan in which all impacted families will receive emergency MetroCards to ride public buses and subways for free during the school day.
