FCCPS Transportation is preparing for that time when students return to school.
The staff has been participating in training, cleaning buses, and addressing minor maintenance issues. All drivers will be performing their usual pre-trip inspections and driving bus routes approximately once each week.
Diesel buses do not do well sitting for long periods of time, and running them each week will allow the batteries on the buses to fully charge while drivers can review the bus stops locations from last year to see if there are any new hazards, construction, or other areas that will impact bus stop placement for this school year.
We wanted to be sure the community is aware that we will be out and about occasionally as we prepare to return. Everyone in Transportation is looking forward to seeing your children soon.
