Hancock County bus drivers are fighting to prevent the relocation of the bus garage from Weirton to New Cumberland. Their main reason: children's safety.
However, there are also economic factors that would save taxpayers a lot of money, according to bus drivers who are working to keep the bus garage in Weirton.
"It is absolutely a waste of taxpayer money, but that's the secondary problem," said Terryn Risk, a Hancock County bus driver. "The primary problem is the evacuation of the children it would take them far too long in an event of an emergency."
