These past few weeks Bus 53 has not arrived to pick up Highline students at the PAC.This has been an ongoing problem at Highline. I personally take the bus and I have to be dropped off now due to not having enough buses to transport kids to school. Lately the after school bus, 88,only takes about 75% of the students back to the PAC and the rest have to wait until the bus comes back to pick them up.
