BOSTON (AP) - Boston school buses appear to be rolling again a day after a surprise strike by drivers stranded tens of thousands of children.
The school department said on its website Wednesday that "early indications are that most bus drivers are returning to work." Television reports showed buses rolling out of depots.
A schools spokesman says that while those are encouraging signs, there may be delays, and it's unclear whether the return to work was permanent.
A message could not be left at the drivers' union headquarters.
The strike Tuesday by about 600 drivers for the system's transportation contractor caught the city off guard. Drivers say they are unhappy with the way they are being treated.
Boston schools opened an hour early Wednesday for parents who wanted to drop off their children before work.
