MEQUON — Wisconsin Central School Bus notified the Department of Workforce Development on Thursday that it plans to lay off about 54 employees at the end of the school year and close its Mequon facility.

Of the affected positions, 50 are bus drivers, one is a manager, two are technicians and one is a dispatcher.

The planned action is anticipated to be permanent and the facility will be closed at 11127 Industrial Road in Mequon.

Waukesha-Ozaukee-Washington Workforce Development Board staff will coordinate Rapid Response activities.
