CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WVEC) -- Frustrated parents in Chesapeake say school buses are still running late.

Parents tell our partners at The Virginian-Pilot that buses are running as much as 40-minutes behind.

There were similar issues last year.

Chesapeake Schools spent $1.7 million on new technology to help fix the problem, including new radios and a GPS tracking system.

School officials acknowledge problems still persist, saying there are not just not enough bus drivers to go around.
