A school bus used for transporting New York City public school students is seen driving down 135th avenue in the Queens borough of New York January 15, 2013. New York City school bus drivers will go on strike on Wednesday, an action that Mayor Michael Bloomberg said would complicate the commute of more than 152,000 students in the nation's largest public school system.
