School buses rolled in this morning, but behind the wheel  were replacement drivers.

The group was greeted by angry strikers at Staten Island’s Atlantic Express bus depot.

The rank and file aren’t happy with the replacements.

They say  the drivers only went through  four hours of training,  which some believe is not enough.

Bus drivers walked off the job back on Jan. 16th. At issue, cutting costs versus cutting the jobs of drivers and matrons.
