LCSC Breaks Ground on New Transportation Center

Lebanon Community School Corporation (LCSC) is excited to announce the groundbreaking of our new Transportation Center located at 1570 John Bart Rd. This project marks a milestone in our ongoing efforts to enhance our facilities and better serve our students and staff.

"All of our construction projects are exciting, but this one has been a long time coming," said LCSC Director of Transportation, Becky Nichols. "I couldn't be more excited to see this vision become a reality."

The new Transportation Center will feature numerous enhancements aimed at improving functionality, safety, and aesthetics. Key features include:

  • Increased bus parking capacity
  • Convenient access via John Bart Rd. to streamline operations
  • Designated staff parking for improved safety
  • Canopy coverings for buses to protect them from the elements
  • Two covered fueling stations for efficient refueling operations
  • Installation of acoustical barriers, and mounding with trees and greenery to enhance aesthetics and functionality.

The floor plan has been thoughtfully designed with a focus on safety, efficiency, and convenience:

  • Main front area for staff and visitor parking, ensuring easy access
  • Restroom and shower facilities
  • Four 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 and to improve maintenance costs
  • Thoughtful site design with safety in mind minimizing the need for bus backing 

“The construction of this Transportation Center addresses an immediate need to improve the safety and functionality of our Transportation Department and is designed to grow along with our community. Our current site was designed for less than 20 buses. We operate over 40 buses on a daily basis. The new Transportation Center provides another example of our commitment to provide our students and staff high quality, modern facilities,” said LCSC Superintendent, Dr. Jon Milleman. 

The Transportation Center is expected to be completed by summer 2025. For more information about this project and to see renderings of the new facility, please visit
