View the January 12, 2016 School Committee PowerPoint Presentation (PDF).

Concord Public Schools and the Concord Carlisle Regional School District own and operate a school bus transportation fleet consisting of approximately 21 Concord Public School Buses, 15 Concord Carlisle Regional High School Buses and 43 employees. Recent construction activities at the Concord Carlisle Regional High School resulted in the demolition of the former School Bus Maintenance and Transportation Facility. The relocation of all bus operations has occurred with current school bus maintenance and storage facilities temporarily housed in Acton, Massachusetts.

The Town of Concord has acquired the WR. Grace Superfund site located at 214Y Main Street with access provided from 37 Knox trail in Acton, Massachusetts, a property also recently acquired by the Town.

The Town has commenced design and permitting of a new School Bus Maintenance and Transportation Center on an accelerated schedule at this location.

The facility will include a pre-fabricated four bay maintenance building including tools, equipment and building "fit out," an office, parking for approximately 40 40-feet buses and 43 staff members, storm water BMPs, a water main extension for both potable water and fire protection, a fueling depot and on-site sanitary sewer disposal. Following design, permitting and approval of supplemental funding in the amount of $1,950,000 requested at the 2016 Annual Town Meeting and ballot vote, the Town intends to commence construction of the new Maintenance and Transportation Center on a schedule to accommodate bus parking, maintenance and operations beginning in early 2017.
