Providence Rolls Out New Wheels for Group Transportation

Providence College and Seminary has been scouting for a new vehicle to replace the school’s ailing coach bus for quite some time. Taking into account cost, fuel economy and group transportation safety, the school has purchased a 21-seat Ford mini-bus.

With the help of Ken Reimer, head of bus sales for Fairway Ford in Steinbach, the decision was made on Feb. 24 and the bus is already in use as it made its maiden voyage for Providence’s athletics teams on a trip to Iowa last week.

This purchase is also made possible with the help of the Winnipeg Foundation, proceeds from the sale of the old Providence bus, contributions from the Fine Arts Department as well as from the Athletic Department.

“The bus is a 21 seater with ample storage for equipment,” says Gary Schellenberg, Director of Campus Services. “The seats are high-back, reclining seats with good quality fabric. The bus has air conditioning, cruise control, a public address system and is altogether a great ride. It is a diesel engine so it will be very economical to drive. Providence will be adding our logo and other decals on the bus as well as installing computer plug-ins for those who are academically inclined to study while on trips.”
