Now that MV Transportation has taken over the Kansas University bus route, will there be any plans to increase its facility? It doesn't seem like it is big enough to handle the increased bus load.

MV Transportation, which starts July 2 as operator of KU on Wheels, plans to run the KU system out of the company's existing Lawrence base, 930 E. 30th St. That's the site MV uses for staging the city's transit system, known as the "T." Mike Sweeten, MV's general manager for the T service, said that the company would stage the additional buses - 28 purchased by KU for use by the KU on Wheels system - on a lot along the south side of 30th Street. The gravel lot is being reworked by the company's landlord, and the two parties are negotiating a new lease for both sections of property.
