Abbotsford To Get New School Buses

Submitted. Through its annual fleet renewal program, the provincial government is providing the Abbotsford School District with $409,058 for the purchase of three new school buses.

“Safety is paramount when it comes to transporting our students to and from school,” said Abbotsford-Mission MLA Simon Gibson.

The 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 worked with the Association of School Transportation Services of B.C. to procure the school buses using the Standing Offer Pricing model.

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