SCHOOL BUS SAFETY

School Bus Safety is a priority and buses are inspected twice a year by NJ Motor Vehicle Commission. The State conducts random inspections and safety evacuation drills. In addition to our semi-annual inspections by MVC, our on-site mechanics work daily to provide all necessary maintenance to our fleet.
