Trips are assigned to MHRD full-time Bus Drivers unless the departure time is between 2:00 PM and 3:45 PM. In those cases, an approved contractor bus will be used. Trips are assigned to MHRD full-time drivers on an equitable basis.
Three picklists are established twice per year, in September and February. They are:
- New York/Philadelphia,
As trips are assigned from the appropriate list and the available driver with the least number of trips is automatically assigned. An email is sent to the driver with the date, time and location of the trip. The driver has 48 hours to reject that trip. If the trip is rejected, it is considered taken and then assigned to the next available driver on the list with the least amount of trips.
