Photo detail

The vehicle maintenance garage at the ACPS Transportation Center. Four maintenance bays service all of ACPS’s vehicles, though not all bays can accommodate buses. Currently mechanics are able adequately to prepare buses each day for their morning runs, but only if they “hump,” according to one mechanic. With busing capacity needs expected to increase with rising enrollment, more bays and parking are needed. Upgrading the facility will cost an estimated $6.1 million over FY19-27. A fleet management study, which the city expects to be complete by late fall, may identify opportunities to streamline both city and school vehicle maintenance. Currently the two fleets are maintained in separate facilities across the street from one another.
