By Roger Weeder First Coast News JACKSONVILLE, FL -- Local school bus contractor, Gelaro Transport, is giving up the final two years of its bus contract because it's a hardship. The company informed the school transportation department of its decision and the north side bus routes are now up for bid. Gelaro is wrapping up its third year. The company says its current charge of $3.10 a mile is not enough. Gelaro has 110 routes and transports around five thousand children every day. The company says it will bid for the new contract. School transportation says scores of national companies have been invited to submit bids. Those bids will be evaluated next month with the school board expected to make a decision in February.
