Cited for the efficiencies created through the use of technology, as well as participating in the County's collaborative parts bidding process, the shop's greatest strength is its crew of mechanics, with a total of 135 years of experience.  The department has 125 school buses and 26 other vehicles, maintained by 7 mechanics and the shop crew chief.  AAPS vehicles transport 9,000 students, serve 38 schools, and drive 1.7 million miles annually.
