JCPS First Day Commutes Improve

All Jefferson County Public Schools buses were cleared from the last bus depot at 6:38 Tuesday evening, ending the first day of school.

That beats last year time, when the final students were reportedly delivered home after 7:20 pm. The morning commute was also slightly better than last year, according to a JCPS spokesman.

Over 950 JCPS buses carry some 70,000 students throughout the county on any given school day.
