• Transportation Center



    We are excited about the upcoming construction of a new transportation center, a facility crucial for supporting our dedicated transportation department. Bidding is scheduled for November 2023 and we are planning to break ground in spring 2024.  Here's what you can look forward to: 

    • Implementation of sound-absorbing acoustics to reduce noise in the surrounding area 
    • Construction of mounding on the eastern side for enhanced aesthetics and functionality
    • Rear parking designated for 16 buses, with overall capacity for up to 80 buses
    • Convenient access via John Bart Rd. to streamline operations
    • Designated staff parking for easy access and convenience
    • Canopy coverings for buses to protect them from the elements
    • A fuel station for efficient refueling operations

    In terms of the floor plan, emphasis has been placed on safety, efficiency, and convenience:

    • Main front area for staff and visitor parking, ensuring easy access
    • Restroom and shower facilities 
    • 4 service bays for effective maintenance and repairs
    • Adequate space for bus maintenance and repair work
    • Dedicated computer space near service bays to facilitate order and inventory management
    • Ample storage space to organize equipment and supplies effectively
    • Automatic bus wash for convenient cleaning, especially during winter
    • Placement of 2 garages each on the north and south sides, minimizing the need for bus backing when not necessary
