A new company could be in charge of school bus services for Hamilton County schools.

During a special called meeting on Thursday night, Hamilton County school board members voted to accept a proposal from the school system's transportation director to select First Student for bus services.

First Student and Durham School Services submitted bids for the job.

Durham currently provides most of the school bus services for the school system.

The board only voted to accept the proposal to replace Durham with First Student.

The board has not agreed to sign a contract to officially switch to First Student at this time.
