Vehicle Service Center
Jonathan McLendon, Director
The McComb School District currently transports approximately 2,500 students on 25 buses to and from school on a daily basis. These buses will cover over 43 routes daily and travel approximately 131,724 miles annually. To accomplish this task, the district operates 16 route buses that do 2 or 3 routes each.
The transportation and maintenance facility was newly constructed in 2006. It is a 7,500 square foot facility accommodating a 2-bay service department for maintenance of all school district-owned vehicles. Full-time staff includes the director of transportation and maintenance, a bus transportation supervisor and an administrative assistant. The district owns and operates 25 gasoline and diesel powered school buses, plus another 18 support service vehicles. All school buses are equipped with cell phones and a video surveillance system.
We believe that all students have the right to a safe and pleasant trip to and from school. We believe all students can behave appropriately and safely while riding on a school bus. We will not tolerate any student interfering with drivers and paraprofessionals doing their jobs, and we will continue to work toward protecting all passengers' right to a safe bus ride.
