The Public School System’s Special Education Program recently procured four new mini-buses to add to its fleet for transporting students with disabilities to and from various public schools in the CNMI.

These mini-buses are designed for sitting passengers, equipped to safely secure up to three wheelchairs, with side or rear door loading. 

Funds used to procure the mini-vans are from the Special Education Program, according to Special Education program director Donna Flores.

The vans were delivered yesterday to the main transportation hub of PSS, the Office of Pupil Transportation Office, in Lower Base.

Saipan will get two buses, while Tinian and Rota will get one each.

Flores extended her appreciation to Education Commissioner Dr. Alfred B. Ada, Federal Programs officer Tim Thornburgh, and the PSS Office of Pupil Transportation for overseeing this purchase for CNMI students.

Last March, PSS purchased 16 vans to further support and expand PSS’ current transportation fleet, primarily providing transportation needs of all public elementary, middle and high schools on Saipan, Tinian and Rota. (PSS)
