The Old School Bus

We have been working alongside the knowledgeable folks at City Wide Taxi and Transportation to transform this bygone bus into a dynamic community space. Purchase of the bus and the recently installed accessibility lift was made possible by the Scotiabank Community Fund and a collection of incredible individual donors in our community.

 

All that's left is the interior facelift! The retrofit of the interior of the bus has been partially funded by the New Horizons for Seniors Program. We have been so blessed with the time and expertise of architect Craig Greene, who has helped us design a space to meet the multipurpose and interdisciplinary needs we anticipate.

 

News coming soon about the amazing helpers who will assist us with the literal heavy lifting!

Why a bus?

  • It enables travel to small communities with limited programming and performance offerings.

  • It serves as a storage space for our program resources and performance sets, props, and costumes.

  • It allows Old School to offer a unique celebration experience that will fund other intergenerational  programs.

  • It is an accessible, creative space for all.

  • It allows for indoor and outdoor programming. 

  • It is a physical reinvention of an old school bus, just as Old School mandates.
