Drivers Call for Work Stoppage Against DATTCO: Students Without Transportation Will Be Excused from Attending School on Tuesday

(HARTFORD, Monday, May 16) – The driver’s union for DATTCO, one of Hartford Public Schools’ main bus service providers, has called for a one-day work stoppage against DATTCO on Tuesday, May 17th.
Due to this one-day work stoppage against the company there will be no bus service from DATTCO for students who are residents of Hartford on Tuesday, May 17th.
“We are disappointed that this bus provider and its bus drivers have been unable to reach an agreement to avoid this unnecessary interruption of transportation services,” said schools Superintendent Beth Schiavino Narvaez.
Students that are not able to attend school due to lack of bus services from DATTCO will be fully excused from class for their absence on Tuesday, May 17th.
Suburban magnet school students and door-to-door bus transported special education students will not be impacted by this stoppage. Transportation for suburban magnet school students and door-to-door bus transported special education students will proceed under normal operating hours.
DATTCO’s bus service is scheduled to resume normal operations by Wednesday, May 18th.
