SPRINGFIELD, Ill. | A Joliet-based company that provides school-bus services plans to lay off 330 employees by the end of June.

According to notices filed by Illinois Central School Bus with the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, the people will be laid off at four locations due to a lost contract.

The company plans to lay off 106 people in University Park, 76 in Carbondale, 78 in Mount Prospect and 70 in Bartonville, near Peoria.

The notices do not provide details about the jobs or the lost contract. The company did not immediately return a telephone message Wednesday seeking comment.

The state's Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification requires companies to give the state advance notice before mass layoffs.
