Charlotte-Mecklenburg buses start practice week

Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Charlotte-Mecklenburg school bus drivers hit the roads around 5 a.m. Monday morning for their first week back from summer break. Drivers use this week to practice new routes and work out any kinks in the system before the real thing comes next week.

CMS says almost 1,000 school buses will be out on the streets this week. School officials say you should be aware and plan extra time for any traffic the buses might add to your commute.

CMS students will be on board those buses next week starting on Monday. Officials urge students to be at their bus stop 10-15 minutes early.
