WAYNE COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Eight new school buses are on their way to Wayne County after the Board of Education approved the purchase Tuesday night.
The district is buying the buses at a cost of more than $760,000 to replace older ones in the fleet. The state is footing most of the cost, while the district will pay about $2,400.
School leaders say it's a priority to maintain a fleet of buses to get your child to class on time and safely.
"When parents can know that their child is being transported safely, there is no price that you can put on that," Superintendent Sandra Pertee said.
The buses are being purchased from Heritage International Trucks in Charleston.
