PR busses will keep rolling

Published 11:22am Monday, December 10, 2012

School board officials in Pelican Rapids can breathe a sigh of relief over uncertainty regarding their school bus contact. Current contractor Christianson Bus Company is going to continue service.

“It doesn’t put us behind the eight ball,” said School board president Don Perrin. “We won’t have to worry about it through the end of the year.”

A clause in the current contract allows the bus service to discontinue service upon 30 days written notice. While written notice was not given, a representative from Christianson verbally expressed their intention to cut the contract early due to the owner’s planned retirement.

This started a flurry of meetings over the past month. One other bus company, Ottertail Coaches, and two private parties expressed interest in the contract.

It was learned that Christianson would continue service at a school board meeting Tuesday.
