"We're not seeing as much progress as we'd like to hear. Like I said, there's party politics going on that makes it look like a setback, but I think there are conversations going on behind the scenes," Union teacher Brendon Jarvis said.

The teachers are paying for the cost of the transportation. The association says it is charging $5 per rider to help pay for the cost of the bus.
