New location for California bus barn

January 3rd, 2012 in News

Durham School Services has rented a building located on 50 Highway, above, owned by Lehman Construction Company, California, to serve as the new bus barn for school buses serving the California area. Nancy Schatzer, site manager for the California bus barn, said the facility and parking lot have much more adequate space than the previous location had.

The bus barn for Durham School Service buses that serve the California area is at a new location, as of Wednesday, Dec. 28. With help from California High School football players and coaches, the move was completed in about three hours.

According to Nancy Schatzer, site manager for the bus barn in California, "We only had to move one block and we're still on 50 Highway. There just wasn't adequate space at the Henry tractor building (which served as the bus barn for three years). It wasn't suited for what we needed. The buses are 40 feet long and that building isn't 40 feet wide. The facility we've rented from Lehman Construction works much better."
