School buses transporting students in Biloxi Public Schools may be running a bit late through the end of the week because of heavier traffic from Cruisin' the Coast and ongoing road work.
We haven't seen the Cruisin' impact as much this week," said Transportation Director Sam Bailey, "but this morning, with the nice weather, we're seeing more and more Cruisers in Biloxi, which is having an impact on our travel time.
The Biloxi public schools system operates as many as 42 buses to transport as many as 2,300 students on 126 routes each school day.
