Gentlemen start your engines - the battle of the school bus has begun

At various points, the presenters told the audience:
·         there is no complete interim solution for all 400 buses currently located at the Shady Grove Bus Depot;
·         buses relocated to Carver would all have to test their horns in the morning, likely during the 6 a.m. hour though some would start even earlier;
·         no heavy maintenance or fueling would occur at Carver though there would be a truck on site for light maintenance, like jump starting buses; and
·         some buses would return after the drivers complete morning routes around 10 a.m. and then head back out again between 1:45-2 p.m. with a return time of 5 p.m. though the MCPS staffers did not offer an exact number;
·         on cold mornings, bus checks would start at around 4 a.m.; and
·         several different governing bodies have a stake in deciding the fate of the depot.
