The Coloradoan: Transportation Managers Discuss School Bus Safety

On May 18, 2014, The Fort Collins Coloradoan ran a story about bus safety in the Poudre School District (PSD) and other Northern Colorado districts.

Reporter Madeline Novey talked to several school district transportation managers about the “kid-centric” nature of their jobs and about the measures that are in place to keep school children safe while being transported to and from school and related activities.

The story followed an April 18, 2014 accident in which a car “slammed into and under” a bus, injuring four children and the bus driver.

“Every day, 143 buses navigate more than 1,800 square miles in PSD,” the article states. “April’s crash, coupled with a May 12 incident that seriously injured a Utah resident driving a school bus on Interstate 25, remind us all these sorts of events could happen at any moment.”

The article highlights the measures that school bus manufacturers and safety and interior solution providers utilize to protect students. “School buses are also designed specifically for the safe transport of kids, and people who rode them years ago will notice some differences.”
