AACPS to use vans to transport some students to school

As many as 2,600 Anne Arundel County students may finally have rides to school. After a vote on Wednesday by the Board of Education, the district announced it will add 24 passenger vans to its fleet. By doing so, it'll free up school buses to help more students get to class. The new passenger vans, which will transport nonpublic school students, will hit the road by Dec. 6. Officials said the new arrangement will help the district make good on its promise to improve bus service throughout the county.
