School Buses Vandalized Over Shabbos

Three buses, two owned by Crown Heights Mosdos and another owned by a local business were vandalized over shabbos. Leaving all three inoperable and unable to drive.


Vandals flattened the tires of three school buses over shabbos on Troy Ave between Montgomery and Crown St. The vandals ripped the air valve out of the tires, leaving them deflated and unable to be used.

One of the buses is owned by Cheder Ohr Menachem, another Oholai Torah, and the other BSD Transit Corp, a private busing company in Crown Heights.

Crown Heights Shomrim, who was informed immediately following shabbos, contacted the owners of the buses to inform them of the incident.

    While it is terrible that this happened, these buses should not be parked on the streets, they should be parked in a garage or in a lot.

      1. These busses serve our community and our children.
      2. For the most part they don’t park on residential streets, but rather on Avenues, where there are few if any residences (or entrances to such).
      3. What about Mitzvah Tanks parking on residential streets?

    Every lot available is taken. Schools don’t want to park in the street it leaves them to vandels thrives and homeless ppl

    That’s besides the ticket they get they have no choice realty is very expensive and no one wants to use it as a bus parking lot leaving no where but property that the school owns and very few other places to park busses .
