POTTSTOWN PA – Five new vehicles will join the Pottsgrove School District bus fleet as a result of a unanimous Board of School Directors’ decision earlier this month.
During its Sept. 10 meeting, the board authorized the purchase of:
- Two 72-passenger buses from Wolfington Body Company Inc., at a total cost of $161,584;
- Two 20-passenger buses from Rohrer Bus Sales, at a total cost of $88,996; and
- One 9-passenger van from Wolfington, at a cost of $39,352.
The van replaces another vehicle that was deemed a total loss following an accident in which it was involved last year, district Business Administrator David Nester explained. Post-accident insurance paid the district $7,500 for the van’s value at the time, he added. The cost of the new van will be paid from Pottsgrove capital reserve funds, Nester said.
