Some students who attend the Austintown Local School District may have a change in their bus routes to and from school beginning Thursday.

The transportation section of the district's website shows that bus numbers, bus drivers, and pickup and drop-off times for some students may have changed to increase consistency and efficiency for bus riders due to an ongoing bus driver shortage.

Meanwhile, students' bus stop locations and school start and end times will remain the same.
