Ed•e Community Bus


Eastern Carver County Schools’ Community Education and district Transportation Department have partnered with Carver County Public Health to create Ed•e. The repurposed bus will serve as a mobile community connection – bringing educational enrichment, learning opportunities and some health services to Carver County families and residents where they live – right in their own neighborhoods.  
A substantial grant from UCare made it possible to transform the bus, which was donated by Positive Connections, into a mobile learning and meeting place. The renovated bus includes access to broadband internet, smart touchscreen tv, small group meeting space, workspaces and chairs. Ed•e is equipped with a wheelchair lift, a generator and HVAC system for year-round use.  

The refurbished bus offers:

Flexible space for learning, meetings, and classes · wifi access · smart tv for presentations · wheelchair lift · foot-pump sink for hand washing · HVAC system · power generator · storage cabinets

Ed•e is available for rental.
