Transportation Maintenance

Drivers perform pre-trip inspections daily before taking the buses out on the road. Deficiencies are reported to the shop and repairs are made when the bus is returned (if the problem is not a safety risk). All buses have routine maintenance inspections done every 30 working days. Equipment must meet rigid Department of Transportation as well as Florida Department of Education standards. Florida DOE inspectors conduct safety inspections of the facility periodically.

Seven mechanics are now employed and are bound by strict guidelines for any safety related issue occurring on the route, repairs are done on the road. Mechanics are on duty and respond to the driver when necessary.
