The first Magic School bus is about to be delivered to the Yonkers city council district.
The Yonkers City Council will vote on the project on June 23, 2019.
It will be the first bus to be installed in the city.
The bus, which will be made by the company Magic Bus, has been in development for the last seven years.
There are about 6,000 students in the public schools in Yonkers.
Yonkers Public Schools has not received a single bus.
The city council voted on Tuesday to award $100,000 to the school district to purchase the bus.
“We need to bring the city together,” said Mayor Robert Breslow.
“We need more people to see the bus.”
The buses are meant to be used by the students of the school districts, who have not had a vehicle for more than five years.
The buses are intended to be an alternative to private cars and to give children more flexibility.
Breslow said the bus is a critical step toward the city meeting its ambitious goal of having 5,000 bus routes by 2030.
For years, school districts have been reluctant to spend money to expand buses.
Breswell said the budget for the buses is $500,000.
Some of the bus routes are already in operation, such as a service to the schools of nearby Yonkers and New Hyde Park.
According to the city, the bus will operate on a daily basis from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., seven days a week.
The City Council is expected to vote on approving the contract with the company later this month.
