General Consulting Services
General Consulting Services are available for various types of bus operations, especially school bus, but also including Head Start, and some areas of ARC, OMRDD, Motor Coach, Transit, Ambulette, or other passenger transporters. Consulting is available for a specific project or concern, or for major changes to a fleet operation such as mergers, annexations, interim vacancies, etc. or to have a Transportation Consultant available on an as-needed basis during routine operations.
Accident Reporting/Review & Follow-up
The bus industry has an excellent safety record. Therefore the need to comply with the post-accident requirements of various government agencies is very infrequent for many fleets. The requirements are somewhat complex and a challenge to stay current on. We can assist with:
-Filing Reports, and/or other post-accident requirements.
-Collect and document related data and details that can be beneficial to addressing concerns of your constituency, and provide a forum for all interested parties to have their concerns documented and addressed.
Testimony and/or related research and support for post-accident/incident litigation.
Provides a review of a school bus operation, either District-owned or Contract-operated, for the purpose of assessing the current level of compliance with the requirements of any or all agencies that regulate the transportation of school children. The review can be of the total transportation program, or limited to any selected portions of it, as requested by a school district or carrier. Issues relative to good safety practices can be included as well as regulatory compliance. For school district fleets we recommend this service to assist with the “District Safety Review,” the self-assessment program recommended by SED.
To review your school transportation policy, research specific questions you may have about it, and/or assist with developing new or updating existing policy. Standing operating procedures (SOP) and/or administrative regs for implementing policy should be included.
