Driving a school bus is very challenging and certainly one of the most safety sensitive types of commercial driving. Working under New York State regulations and guidelines that we were instrumental in creating, we train over 200 applicants per year to become bus drivers.
Our safety manual (the System Safety Program Plan), which was created by our Company, has become a model for like businesses to follow. This manual is comprehensive and is used by our school bus and transit employees. This manual is not state or federally mandated for school bus operation, but we feel it provides direct insight and directive on all aspects of the employees' position regarding safety. New employees receive this manual in their hiring packages and are required to bring it to all mandated refresher courses.
