About 100 bus drivers protested outside the school bus yard on Freeport Street in Dorchester Saturday morning, BPS said in a statement.

The union was unable to be reached Sunday afternoon. Drivers stopped working for one day Oct. 8, an unannounced strike that left about 30,000 Boston Public Schools students without transportation. Union representatives have raised issues of benefits, payment, and fair treatment.

Starting at 6 a.m. Monday, parents can check the department’s online school bus tracker at schoolbus.bostonpublicschools.org or call 617-635-9520 or 617-635-4500.
