A number of parents are expressing their frustration, saying school buses are showing up late, and in some cases, not showing up at all.
Stephanie MacKinnon, the transportation spokesperson for the Halifax Regional Centre of Education, said they are aware of these issues and are working with their partners to address them.
"We are experiencing some common back-to-school busing challenges," she said. "We certainly are working with the provider very diligently to try to improve on there being timelier notifications for people."
"There's always going to be a few delays in the first few weeks of getting back-to-school as routines get sorted out and we're certainly doing our best to minimize these."
MacKinnon said there is currently a bus driver shortage. She added bus providers are working on recruitment and will hopefully fill those vacancies within the next few weeks.
