SPRINGFIELD, IL - At a news conference held today, the Illinois State Police (ISP) and Mr. Richard Fix, Managing Director of the Springfield Mass Transit District (SMTD), announced the donation of a 39-passenger bus. "This generous donation by the SMTD is a valuable addition to the ISP’s transportation fleet. Not only will the bus provide a more practical and economical means of transportation, it will also enhance our ability to transfer cadet and recruit classes from the academy to various training locations," said ISP Director Sam W. Nolen. "The Illinois State Police is very grateful to Mr. Fix and the SMTD for their generosity."

The bus, retired from the Springfield Mass Transit District last year, has been striped with ISP markings and modified to make it highway usable. A message board on the front displays a "Buckle Up" safety message, while the rear panel contains recruitment information. Although it won’t be directly involved with enforcement activities, Nolen warned violators it will be fully equipped with ISP radios.
