Fleet flocks to new home
Lincoln Parish Schools Director of Auxiliary Services Charles Owens said it’s important to keep older model spare buses on hand in case the regular route buses break down, as one reportedly did earlier this week while en route carrying students. Having several spare buses available means another bus can be sent right away.
“Because of the number of buses, we’ve not totally missed a route in about 12 years,” Owens said. “I can remember when we didn’t have adequate spares and sometimes missed a route. Kids would have to wait until we ran one route and then put that bus on the route missed.”
