FIXABUS

MAKING YOUR MAINTENANCE FACILITY A TRANSPORTATION ASSET

THE CONCEPT

The underlying reasons to utilize this program are to:

  • Collaborate to generate a new source of funds
  • Leverage facility and offer preventative maintenance and warranty service to neighboring school districts or local churches and non-profit organizations

THE FOCUS

The primary service offerings could be:

  • Preventative Maintenance
  • Basic Maintenance Repair Services
  • Inspection Preparation

THE IMPLEMENTATION

This program is a simple and fresh way to leverage a school’s maintenance facility and local skills to service buses from other schools and generate a new source of funds for the classroom. We establish a 2nd and 3rd shift at the facility to perform both routine maintenance and bus warranty repairs. Additional mechanics are hired locally to support this activity.

THE RESULTS

  • For the school: 40% of gross revenue or 50% of the net profits
  • Quality service at reasonable costs for other community organizations
  • Intern opportunities for students
