NORTH ATTLEBORO - Someone surfing the internet last year might have stumbled across the town's Big Red Bus on a website municipalities use to sell surplus equipment.
The bus had been sidelined for the last five years because it was beyond repair. A replacement may be in the near future, however.
State Representative Adam Scanlon was able to secure $50,000 from the state towards a replacement.
The town council forwarded a request by Town Manager Michael Borg Wednesday night to transfer $115,000 to pay for the balance on the cost of a new Big Red Bus.
