USD 429 Taking Bids
USD 429 was awarded a clean diesel grant under the EPA’s 2019 School Bus Rebate Program. The rebate will be used on the purchase of a new 2021 activity bus. In order to receive the full rebate of $20,000 USD 429 must scrap one of our older, less efficient buses. USD 429 has a 1999 bus that we have available for purchase. The bus has to be rendered inoperable. All requirements will need to be met, which includes a hole drilled in the engine block and the chassis being cut. USD 429 will oversee the work to make the bus inoperable but it will be the responsibility of the winning bidder to perform all the work to make the bus inoperable. Please contact Patrick E. McKernan if interested or to submit a bid. All bids must be submitted by Dec. 1, 2020.
