BACK TO SCHOOL 2013

This is part of an occasional series of stories leading up to the start of the school year next week.

 

GREENFIELD — With just a few days before students start lining up at the bus stop, hundreds of school buses are ready to roll.

Each year before the start of school, buses throughout the state are inspected by Indiana State Police and undergo necessary maintenance before admitting their passengers.

Over the past two weeks in Hancock County, state police inspected 164 buses. Of those 164, all but nine were given the green light, according to the inspection reports. The remaining nine will stay out of service temporarily until they undergo maintenance, much of which will be completed before school starts.
