Wednesday, October 5, the inhabitants of Hauts-de-France are struggling to find fuel, due to shortages. During the week, school transport did not pick up the students.
In Arras (Pas-de-Calais), one of the only service stations in which there is fuel left is stormed, Wednesday, October 5. Drivers are tired of waiting. One of them will not be able to work without gasoline. Monday morning, 400 students from Amiens (Somme) were deprived of transport, which is incomprehensible to parents. “It should be in priority vehicles”notes a mother.
Ten buses were affected during the week, and the main bus company was supplied with fuel. But the situation could get worse. “All the bus companies tell us that if they are not supplied this weekend, it is almost half of the transport that cannot be provided from Monday”, dreads Franck Dhersin, vice-president of the Hauts-de-France regional council. Every day, more than 200,000 children borrow school buses In the region.
