Schools Donate Retired Bus to Parks and Recreation


Freddie McCracken, TCPS School Safety and Security Specialist and Preston Peper, Director of Talbot County Parks and Recreation.

A “retired” school bus has been repurposed to serve local children in a new way.  Talbot County Public Schools has donated a 15-year-old school bus to Talbot County Parks and Recreation.  TCPR will use the bus to transport summer campers to field trips and other off-site activities.

“While this bus has exceeded its usable life for the school system’s purposes,” said Freddie McCracken, TCPS School Safety and Security Specialist, “the motor and transmission are still in good working order. It should work for this type of use by Parks and Recreation for quite some time.”

The bus will soon have a new look and new color scheme so be on the look-out!
