In a special meeting, the Wellsboro Area School District approved a bus contract with Niles Transportation Inc. and offered new terms to a second.

The board unanimously approved the contract to transport school pupils at the Dec. 3 meeting. The contract runs from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2024.

No details were provided on the contract.

Following a 15-minute executive session, the board reconvened and approved an amended contract terms for the second bus contract. Those terms will be offered to Benedict’s Bus with a deadline of this Friday, Dec. 6, to respond.

If the company fails to respond by the deadline, the school district will put out a request for proposals, opening the contract to other bus companies.
