‘Significant’ bus delays for some Minneapolis Public Schools students

November 13, 2018

Minneapolis Public Schools delayed its bus transportation service by one hour Tuesday afternoon because of a gas leak at the Metropolitan Transportation Network building in Fridley.

Some schools will experience significant bus transportation delays this afternoon due to issues beyond our control, the states third-largest school district announced on Twitter.

District spokesman Dirk Tedmon said the one-hour delay prevented 1,800 students from getting home on time.

Around 1 p.m., district officials were informed of the possible gas leak and they quickly worked with schools to inform parents of the delay, Tedmon said.
