Transportation Safety

Our fleet is up-to-date with state-of-the-art safety features including:

  • Improved visibility with advanced mirror systems that are heated

  • 360-degree aerial camera system, including a rear vision camera for backing up, enabling the driver to have a live view around the bus when loading and unloading students

  • Black hoods that reduce glare for drivers, eliminating blinding light

  • Tinted windows reducing glare and improving climate control year round

  • Two 'stop' signs (one in front of the bus, and one at the rear) provide increased visibility when loading/unloading students on roadways

  • Lighted front/rear 'school bus' signs offer increased visibility at night and early morning

  • New collision and lane departure warning systems

  • Exclusive use of Michelin open-shoulder tires has improved traction, reduced hydroplaning and increased fuel mileage
