New Rules for School Buses

Prompted by the fatal accident of a bus on the way Shirdi recently when reportedly, 30 people were killed, the government started a drive to catch hold of illegal private bus operators. The transport department has also come up with new rules under which, school and college managements have to display clearly the data like the bus driver’s name, driving license number and complete address in each bus.

The government has taken measures like uploading an order wherein additional conditions for school buses have been laid. It includes inspection of each school bus by parents’ committee to check its fitness for plying for children.
