Columbus City Schools bus drivers spent Tuesday practicing their routes one final time before students climbed aboard tomorrow for the first day of school.

The districts transports more than 37,000 students on nearly 680 routes, officials said.

"They are doing their routes just as they will tomorrow, except no students,' Director of Transportation Steve Simmons said. "(They're) making sure their directions are correct...and making sure they get to your bus stops on time."

A back-to-school pamphlet advised students should ready at their designated bus stops five minutes before their scheduled pick-up time.

Simmons asked parents to say their 'goodbyes' at home to keep delays minimal.

District officials recommended parents download the Columbus City Schools mobile app, which allows parents to sign up for 'bus bulletins' that alert them on delays with their child's bus.

Simmons said CCS has hired enough full-time drivers, but the district was still looking to hire substitutes.
