Re: Kansas to keep buses 25 years...
It shouldn't affect it too much. Just because they can doesn't mean they will. CT doesn't have a legal age limit, as long as the bus passes inspection for the year it was built, it's legal to keep running it. However, most contractors here retire their buses after 10-15 years, and most district fleets retire them between 12-20. Contracts often have an age limit much lower than the legal limit, and districts often replace buses earlier to keep the parents happy.
