PEORIA, Ill., — While schools aren’t back in session yet, it’s time for drivers to start being aware of school buses on the roadways.
Peoria Public Schools bus practice runs for this year begin on August 7.
Empty school buses will be on the roads doing dry runs this week.
During dry runs the stop arms on the buses will not be used, but frequent stops will be made as drivers are figuring out their routes. \
You may see those buses slow down or stop to make sure they’re stopping in the right location, just please be patient with us, you know we’re out there performing a service for you so please be patient with us.Josh Collins, Peoria Public Schools Director of Transportation
On August 14, the buses will begin picking up students.
