The Vandalia Board of Education last Tuesday approved the purchase of two Blue Bird buses from Central States Bus Sales at $80,440 per bus.
The company, headquartered in Fenton, Mo., also has an Illinois facility at Big Rock.
“This year, we needed to rotate out two buses,” said Superintendent Rich Well. “Even in trying times, we need to buy things to be safe.”
Well said that the old buses will continue to be used, but only on short routes.
