Message from Pat Snell, President of P.S. Logistics FL, LLC:

Greetings from the retirement side of transportation,

It has been over a year since I stepped out of my role as Director of Student Transportation and Fleet Maintenance for Broward District Schools.  Just in case anyone is curious – retirement is glorious!  Since retiring I have started my own consulting company, P.S. Logistics FL LLC, that I operate out of my home in High Springs, Fl.  

I am writing to everyone to ensure that all 67 districts in Florida are aware of the VW Settlement that can infuse up to 70% of $166,000,000 to help replace older diesel buses.  I have not been out of the business long enough to forget what a fight it is to get capital funds to purchase new buses no matter what form of fuel source you choose.  This settlement not only brings cleaner buses, it also brings newer safer technology.

There is a time sensitive comment request from Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) that is due by Friday, August 16, 2019 by 5:00 p.m.  I know that each of you are focusing on one thing, the 2019/2020 school opening. However, this will only take a few minutes to show how much the school bus industry in Florida needs a financial shot in the arm.  Thank you in advance for your support, comments can be emailed to: VWMitigation@FloridaDEP.gov

Example Comment to Florida Department of Environmental    Protection (FDEP):      I want to commend the FDEP for their support in helping    replace the aging fleet of school buses in Florida. As of the    2019 school bus age analysis by the Florida Department of    Education (FDOE) there are 10,793 school buses in Florida that    are between 11 and 30 years old. With the infusion of dollars    from the Florida VW Settlement the districts can start to    purchase new buses to enhance safety, reduce operating costs,    increase reliability and to create a smaller environmental    footprint.    Thank you for putting the safety and well being of the students    in Florida as a priority.
