School bus preparation, Fayette County, 2003

Posted on August 15, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

Mechanic Paul McKenzie changed a burned-out taillight on a Fayette County School bus that was discovered by driver Tommy Hall during a safety check on Aug. 12, 2003, at the Liberty Road school bus garage. Fayette County Public Schools bus drivers took their buses out Wednesday (morning and afternoon runs) in a dry run to go over their routes and bus stops in preparation for the following Monday’s first day of school. The Fayette County School district requires 24 hours of training annually. The dry run was part of the drivers’ training seminar that week. The 215 buses travel 15,000 miles daily. Fayette County schools’ 2017-18 school year begins Wednesday morning. Photo by David Perry | Staff
