Busses parked at the First Student bus depot in New Haven on January 12, 2021.

In Massachusetts, members of the National Guard are being used to ensure there are enough people available to drive school buses and vans to get children to school.

Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont today said that his state is ready to take similar action if needed.

But Lamont said so far he has not received any requests for help in of that type.

School bus drivers are in short supply nation-wide.
