  Operators learn how safety barriers can offer affordable options for coach interiors

 


    From Bus & Motorcoach News:

Sardo Bus & Coach Upholstery has come up with affordable products that can help with social distancing and avoiding the spread of germs.

The company is seeing demand for its new clear plastic divider shields and two kinds of Do Not Sit bands.  Sardo's new wrap-around Do Not Sit bands are in demand.

Sandy Follis, Sardo's President of Sales, talked about the new products at the Aug. 27 United Motorcoach Association Town Hall.

"The main purpose of it is to try to get the coaches back on the road again by helping the passengers to feel safe. All the materials that we use meet the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards," Follis said. "We're using the clear plastic because we don't want to do plexiglass barriers and make something that is permanent, so you're always remembering COVID-19. We want to be able to just unsnap it and get rid of it."

  Georgia District Receives 2 New School Buses, Adds Antimicrobial Treatment

 

  
    From School Bus Fleet:

The Harris County (Ga.) School District has taken delivery of two new school buses that are hitting the road this week and treated them - along with the rest of the fleet - with an antimicrobial surface protectant.

The 2021 Blue Bird conventional school buses are replacing two 2003 buses, which will rotate into the district's fleet of spare buses, Cheryl Johnson, the district's transportation director said in a news release.

Yancey Bus Sales and Service of Macon, Ga., completed the initial installation of the transportation department's standard equipment, such as the four-point camera system and LED lighting. Since the buses arrived in late August, the transportation department's fleet technicians installed final touches such as the two-way radios, lock boxes, and final inspection before the buses began transporting students.
