Feasibility of a Centralized Transportation System in a Rural Intermediate School District.
Central Michigan Univ., Mount Pleasant.
A study of bus transportation was conducted by the Department of Business at Central Michigan University to determine the feasibility of centralizing the transportation function of the seven rural schools in the COOR Intermediate School District in Michigan, who, at the time of the study, operated their own transportation systems. Investigation was made of the feasibility of combining the following areas: (1) bus purchasing; (2) routing and scheduling; (3) bus maintenance; and (4) overall transportation administration. Conclusions reached in the study indicate that combining these operations would result in a more efficient and economical bus operation for the seven local school districts involved. (RH)
