New Bus Route

Durham now has some extra drivers! Because of this, they are able to split up some of the longer or crowded buses. One of these will be RTE 1. The students at the Chena Small Tracks and Palo Verde stops are moving to the new (reinstated technically) RTE 32. The students remaining on RTE 1 will have a later pickup time and an earlier drop-off now. The students moving to RTE 32 should have approximately the same stop times, but on a different bus.
