(STN Podcast E5) – Here’s the Plan: A New Normal for Schools and Busing, Post-Coronavirus

School Transportation Nation podcast – Episode 5

Student transporters are now considering what daily operations will look like when schools reopen from mandated COVID-19 closures.

Greg Jackson, director of transportation and fleet services at Jefferson County Schools near Denver, joins STN Publisher Tony Corpin and STN Editor-in-Chief Ryan Gray to discuss what has to be considered before students get back on the yellow bus.
