This year as students prepare to ride our school buses, they will notice new animals have joined our transportation fleet. In addition to a number, each bus route will also be identified by a unique animal and color combination to enhance rider safety and help our students easily identify their bus route.
“The purpose behind the project was to improve and increase the ease with which our riders, especially the younger ones, identify their bus,” said Director of Transportation, Lance Yoxsimer.
