The Hoover City Schools District Transportation Department has made a huge investment by purchasing 20 air-conditioned buses. Read on to learn more.
A $2M investment
According to ABC33/40, Hoover City Schools invested $2 million dollars into the initiative to make school transportation more comfortable for the students and bus drivers. They purchased 20 Blue Bird buses and by the start of the 2022-2023 school year, the school system will have 51 air-conditioned units total.
They are currently using the special needs buses that have air-conditioning units for summer school transportation.
Being able to air-condition nearly half of our bus fleet in the first year is a major accomplishent for a district our size. We plan to have the rest of our buses equipped with air conditioning within 3 years. We thank members of the Board of Education, our Superintendent, and CSFO for supporting this investment.Jeremy Bradford, Coordinator of Transportation, Hoover City Schools
