The district had paid drivers $12.68 per hour since 2006 and will increase the rate to $14.20 this year. District Superintendent John Fazer said the increase keeps Goodrich in line with other districts in the area.
"The increase should attract people to do work as a substitute bus driver," he said. "It's a very exacting job."
Currently the district has 28 bus routes.
