School Bus Facilities.
Stanford Univ., CA. School Planning Lab.
A summary is presented of a study to determine the building needs of the school transportation operation and to suggest possible uses of aluminum. The report outlines the magnitude of school transportation systems as an indication of buildings necessary to house and maintain equipment. The types of areas needed to fulfill the bus housing and maintenance functions, spatial relationships, utilities provisions, cross-sections and schematic drawings are shown. Emphasis is placed upon flexibility and adaptability to local needs. Data were gathered by questionnaire from 200 school districts; by letter from 48 state departments of education; through analysis of bus chassis manufacturers specifications; from interviews with school bus supervisors, shop foremen, and transportation company officials; and from a survey of the literature.
