Most School Buses Get Passing Grade #nltraffic
The provincial government has released its findings in relation to school bus inspections that were conducted in the fall of 2019.
From August to November 2019, 92.9 percent of school buses inspected received a ‘pass’ rating.
This means on the date of inspection the bus was found to be free of defects or had minor defects that did not preclude the safe operation of the vehicle, either with or without passengers.
Buses that do not pass an inspection must be repaired and proof of the repair must be verified by Service NL before the bus can be returned to service.
At any time throughout the year, Service NL may choose to do additional inspections of an operator’s fleet, especially in cases where a complaint has been received. All complaints against school buses are investigated as soon as the complaint is received.
