Ashland School District is proud to be using Propane along with diesel and gas buses in the fleet. Propane provides an environmentally friendly alternative to diesel or gas. The NHTSA states school buses are the safest mode of transportation for getting children back and forth to school. School buses are designed to be safer than passenger vehicles in avoiding crashes and preventing injury. School buses keep an estimated 17.3 million cars off the roads surrounding schools each morning.
The Transportation Department employs a staff of twenty people. The department has two mechanics that maintain a fleet of 20 buses, 3 district cars and the maintenance vehicles.
All of the transportation employees are state certified school bus drivers with over 200 years combined school bus driving experience for the Ashland School district.
