GETZVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) – First Student is closing its Getzville location and laying off around 80 employees.

The transport company would not say what led to the decision to close their Millersport Highway facility, but Student Transportation of America Inc. announced their company had been awarded contracts with Batavia City Schools, the Attica Central School District, and Williamsville Central Schools.

First Student, which provides service to six million students all around the country, says its employees are free to find work at other bus companies.
