JEFFERSON CITY - The bus company First Student Transportation struck a deal with bus drivers Monday morning after weeks of wage negotiations. The drivers voted 37 to 17 to accept the new contract. About 47-hundred students ride the buses to and from the 17 Jefferson City school.

Jefferson City School officials admitted they were worried, but prepared for the strike. David Luther said, "We had a few things that were going to do. Open school a little bit early, close a little later, so parents could pick-up and drop off. So we are going to run the buses as we have in the past."

Jefferson City Public Schools start the first day of classes Tuesday. The district uses busing services for between 46 to 47,000 students.
