Alternative fuel technology is still a foreign concept to some student transporters who may not be familiar with propane, compressed natural gas (CNG) or hybrid-electric school buses. The good news is that school bus OEMs, “green” suppliers and trade organizations will provide the necessary training.
New York school bus contractor Huntington Coach Corp. received a $50,000 grant last week from Zonar Systems to implement state-of-the-art fleet management products to improve fleet safety, effectiveness, and efficiency.
A national online survey conducted by Harris Interactive shows that two-thirds of U.S. adults support measures to use cameras to ticket motorists who violate state laws prohibiting the illegal passing of school buses.
School Transportation News is partnering with Motorola to present a webinar that provides student transporters with information regarding a Jan. 1, 2013 federal requirement for two-way radio systems to have a narrower bandwidth.
Zonar Systems announced it will extend its annual technology grant program to private school bus companies at the National School Transportation Association's 2012 Midwinter Meeting in Maui, Hawaii.
Chris Hines has joined Zonar Systems as executive vice president, bringing with him more than 25 years of financial and technological experience in the transportation industry.
