"I am proud of everyone," Transportation Director Frank Misner told The Brazil Times. "It was a great team effort and everyone did their part."
The bus garage has been working nonstop since school ended to prepare the buses for the two-day inspection.
"Everyone has worked really hard and the past two days have been really hectic," Garage Supervisor Chris McVay said. "The first day was hot and in the 90s. The second was rainy, so we had both extremes in the weather but everything fell into place and went the way it was supposed to."
Mechanics examined everything from the transmissions to seat backs to light bulbs to paint, bus drivers were responsible for making sure the inside was clean and maintained through out the process.
The Transportation Department only had a few weeks to get all 74 buses ready in a one-bay garage and of those, eight new busses had to be prepared with a two-way radio, registration, insurance and everything else to be up-to-date for inspections.
According to Misner, the Indiana State Police were impressed with the buses and the amount of work that the department put into them in the amount of time allotted.
"When school starts on Aug. 13, the Transportation Department will be ready to roll." Misner said.
