KATY, Texas -

The Katy Independent School District held a transportation job fair to fill several bus driver positions.

The job fair was held at Morton Ranch High School from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday.

"We reduced the number of bus routes from last year because we did not have the number of bus drivers to fill the positions to sustain those routes," Katy ISD spokesman Steve Stanford said.

After parents were notified that routes would be dropped, they voiced their concern regarding the safety of their children walking to and from school.

"We've been listening to parents concerns and we've added four routes last week and another one this week. We will continue to evaluate whether we should add more because of safety concerns," said Stanford.  

Applicants will be asked to complete a driving record screening.

Drivers will need to work a split shift and drive in a safe and on-time manner.

The starting wage is $13.31 per hour.

Qualifications include:
