MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - The school board in Mandan has decided to hold off on adding three new bus routes that could ease congestion.

The Bismarck Tribune (http://bit.ly/1kqnP26 ) reports that the school district only received one bid for the contract. It came from Harlow’s, which provides busing for Bismarck Public Schools, and would have cost the district more than $330 per day for each of the three buses.

Superintendent Mike Bitz says the district is “getting by for now.” He says the transportation department has made changes to accommodate the increasing demand for school busing.

Mandan Public Schools operates its own busing service, providing transportation to 2,300 students.
