KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -- The school year got off to a bumpy start for some KCPS students.

According to the school district, multiple buses got a late start leaving the high schools.

One parent said her child got home three hours late. The district says the delay was only 30 minutes.

KCPS says the driver made a series of wrong turns which put them hours behind schedule.

The bus line is Student Transportation of America.

The company caught up with the lost bus mid-route and replaced the driver with a new one.

The last rider didn’t get home until 7 pm.

The driver has been released from duty.
