Former Hempfield Area transportation provider First Student will lay off 80 local workers


Transportation company First Student is laying off 253 workers, including 80 in Hempfield, after Hempfield Area and Allentown school districts chose different bus transportation providers for the 2024-25 school year.

The company posted an alert on the state WARN layoff alert site indicating it would close two facilities, one at 1812 S. 12th St. in Allentown, Lehigh County, and the other at 3740 State Route 136 in Hempfield. The closure is effective June 30.


A spokesperson for the company said the layoff was based on the districts selecting new transportation providers.
