Cover Story

Next-Level Communication
Vehicle-to-everything technology is helping to make the roadway safer for not only drivers but also students who are attempting to get to and from school.


Electric school buses are tapping into the benefits of GPS for more than monitoring where the vehicles are. The technology can show the state of charge and where the next charges might come from.

Smart Video
Whether seeking to capture illegal passers (or misbehaving students on board), video technology is advancing and with it the need for student transporters to manage new processes and equipment.

Special Reports

Diagnosing Engine, Vehicle Faults Before Reaching Emergency Status
Vehicle maintenance software is alerting mechanics and technicians to issues that arise in school buses well before they need to be taken out of service for repairs.
