HANOVER, VA (WWBT) - They log thousands of miles a year carrying precious cargo. In Hanover County a close-knit circle of school bus drivers meets regularly in friendship and love.
They offer support when a fellow driver has had a bad day, celebrate life milestones and holidays, even vacation together.
These "bus buddies" also reach out to help area families in need. If there's a crisis affecting a student, they'll collect money, provide food and clothing.
Drivers say when kids ride their buses, they're regarded as family.
