New buses needed to accommodate the Ocean View School District's expanded busing program next year will cost the district one-third more than projected, officials said. The school district expects to spend about $940,000 for 13 buses, rather than the $694,000 estimate made last spring, said Jim Jones, Ocean View's assistant superintendent for business services. One reason for the increased projection is the cost of each bus has gone to $72,300 from $69,400, Jones said.
