New district-wide transportation center

The need:

Maize Schools operates its own fleet of buses and staff of drivers, who run more than 100 bus routes. About 4,000 students ride daily. Our facility at 7700 W. 53rd St. North in Wichita was built for trash trucks. Drivers face a dangerous bottleneck daily while driving buses into and out of the center’s narrow entrance, illustrated at right.

Our vision:

A safer new center will better maintain the district’s transportation fleet. It will allow buses to be parked under a partial awning, protecting windshields and engines from the elements. There will be adequate space for bus repairs and maintenance.
