URBANA — C-U MTD will have a new place to train its drivers and they won’t have to go very far. The MTD board voted to approve a lease agreement for a three acre property next to the district’s bus garage.
The deal is with Mid Illinois Concrete and Excavation. Not only can that land be used for driver training, it could also be used to certify school bus drivers from the area.
Previously, drivers trained in a lot where buses are also gassed up and cleaned. The new lot will be dedicated to just training.
