LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - Thursday at midnight was the last chance parents in the Lakota School District had a chance to enroll in a private bus service called the Lakota Busing Service.
The company was founded by Lakota graduate and Super Bowl champion Troy Evans. Many parents including Elisa Dailey have enrolled their children for the service.
"I'm very excited about the busing service," said Dailey.
Dailey has one child going into second grade, and two other children that will be in school within the next few years. She says she asked many questions before enrolling her child.
"Are they going to be good safe buses, have been checked out mechanically," said Dailey. "I don't want my child to have to sit on the bus to get home for a whole hour so I said that is an important thing as a parent."
Dailey says she feels comfortable sending her child on the bus next month and believes the Lakota Bus Service will help ease the burden for hundreds of parents.
According to Troy Evans, the bus service will also put people back to work. He says he plans on hiring some of the Lakota bus drivers that were previously laid off earlier this year.
