Mission Consolidated Independent School District (CISD) Transportation department has been busy this summer on a Bus Restoration initiative that began two weeks ago. Six buses have been identified, so far, that needed a minor facelift because the paint has faded. The district wants to make sure that students are boarding a bus that not only runs like new but looks like new as well. The bright yellow will shine once again on all the district’s buses.

“These buses represent the district and having them repainted makes them look nicer,” states Nora Tijerina, Director of Transportation. “We decided to do the restoration project in house since we do have a certified auto body painter on staff that can do the work. It also saves the district time and money.”

The district did receive a quote to have this job outsourced and it came in at a little over $30,000 for six buses and each bus would take approximately a month to be completed. The district chose to have them painted in house with a team of three at a cost of $5,000 for all six buses at a pace of one bus per week.

The transportation team has completed two of the buses and will continue working on the rest of them after the summer break. All six of these buses will join the rest of the fleet and will be ready to hit the road when school is back in session in August.
