Four new school buses on way to School District 60

“These four new buses coming to School District 60 will replace older models and help kids continue to get to school safely,” Peace River North MLA Pat Pimm said. “With the long distances many students in our region need to travel to get to school, renewing the school district’s fleet of buses is a great investment in our children’s education.”

The four new buses will be delivered next spring.

This year, the provincial government is providing $9 million to 22 school districts to purchase 76 buses.

The Ministry of Education has reportedly worked with the Association of School Transportation Services of B.C. to acquire the school buses using the Standing Offer Pricing model, accoding to the province’s Communication Officer, Monika Weatherly.

Contractors, Independent schools and First Nations schools are also able to take advantage of this pricing, which has resulted in savings of 10 – 15 per cent and saves districts “significant administrative and staff time,“ writes Weatherly.
