Bus startles students who expected to be tardy

Fifty-seven buses were more than 10 minutes late arriving at Boston public schools yesterday, the lowest number since the school year began, school officials said.

About 19 percent of buses arrived after the first bell rang, an improvement during a week that saw one in four buses arriving late, some delivering students to school nearly an hour after classes had begun. But that progress, city and district administrators say, is still not good enough.
