2011 - 2012 Exeter Township School District Transportation
Exeter Township School District has owned and operated its school bus fleet since 1974.
Prior to 1974, Mr. Wayne Weiand, a private school bus contractor was contracted to provide transportation for the Exeter Township School District. Mr. Weiand retired in 1974. At that time the school district decided to purchase his fleet of buses and the land where the business was operated from. That location was the corner of Shelbourne & Kerr Roads and is still the current location of the district's bus garage.
In 1974, the district operated approximately 30 school buses and 2 student vans. The largest bus was a 72 passenger capacity and most of the other buses were 66 passenger capacities. An addition was added to the existing buildings at that time. The addition included a maintenance bay, office, driver's room and a parts storage area.
Currently the school district operates 50 school buses and 10 student vans from the Shelbourne & Kerr Roads location.

Every school bus is also inspected by the Pennsylvania State Police annually during the months of July and August. Vehicle maintenance and repairs are also performed at the bus garage location.
