BUS #4.  We've received notification from Atlantic Coast Charters (410-204-2403) regarding a safety issue with the passenger side front/side view mirror on BUS #4. Due to this concern, the bus cannot continue its journey. To address this promptly, the company has contracted a local bus company/service provider to replace the mirror. Additionally, as a precautionary measure, a new bus and driver are en route, with an estimated arrival time of approximately 2.5 hours.

Our top priority is the safety of our students. The bus is currently stationed at the Woodrow Wilson Service Plaza on the New Jersey Turnpike, a secure and fully-equipped rest area offering restrooms and various food options. Students will remain inside the rest area under the supervision of our staff until the replacement bus arrives or the mirror issue is rectified.

Thank you for your patience. We will update information concerning Bus#4 as it becomes available. Students will also be informed as well.
