Ill. contractor to open new bus facility

Posted on August 4, 2011

CAROL STREAM, Ill. — Illinois Central School Bus is preparing to open a new facility here before school begins.

The facility — which will include a bus storage lot, offices and a maintenance area — will have room for parking up to 120 school buses, the Daily Herald reports. The village board granted zoning approvals for the facility this week.

Plans for the facility include the installation of a 2,500-gallon diesel fuel tank and possible future expansion if needed, officials said. About 100 bus drivers and 10 to 15 office and maintenance staff members will operate out of the facility.

This summer, Illinois Central School Bus was awarded transportation contracts for four school districts. The company intends to use the Carol Stream site as its base of operations, officials told the Daily Herald.
