Out with the old, in with the new. A request was made by Director of Transportation, Doug Messer to purchase five new buses and dispose of five old buses, during Wednesday night’s Manhattan Ogden USD 383 school board meeting.
Messer highlighted a new web site put together by the Kansas Department of Transportation that allows school districts to look into prices of buses from different companies, as well as view the features each bus has. The department actually goes out and puts the buses to bids for the districts. He said it has made the process much easier.
