Features

Technology Disruptions in School Transportation
Jim Harris, a keynote speaker at the 2019 STN EXPO Reno and best-selling author, discusses the new technology that is available today. These new developments will provide increased safety and efficiency for school bus services.

Getting Safer with Collision Mitigation
The era of school buses being able to avoid crashes has arrived. But so far, student transporters are slow to adopt the technology. That should soon change.

Technology Super Users
School districts nationwide are dabbling in new technology, with GPS at the forefront of purchasing decisions. Several “Super Users” share their stories and discuss how new technology is transforming their fleet.

Special Reports
