Education Ministry says it's not responsible for paying for yellow school bus services

The Ministry of Education says it has no agreement with drivers of the yellow buses used to transport school children and is therefore not responsible for paying them.

A statement by the Ministry says these private school buses are identified by the words “SCHOOL BUS”.

The ministry says there have been several misleading reports in the media about the payment of private school buses which said the “Ministry owes fees to school bus drivers.”
