    From Bus & Motorcoach News:

The first day of UMA Motorcoach EXPO felt like a long-awaited reunion for UMA Members who have faced business and, in some cases, health challenges over the past year. The 2021 UMA Motorcoach EXPO kicked off Wednesday at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando.

Connie Giddens, who owns Pacific Coachways in the Los Angeles area, with husband Tom, says she is glad that EXPO was pushed back from the first week in March to the end of April. The seven weeks made a difference because more people were able to get vaccinated. Many in attendance reported they were fully or partially vaccinated. Attendees were still asked to follow CDC protocols by wearing masks and social distancing in interior spaces.

Jack Kaufman, of Timi's Tours, says he came to see his industry friends in person. But he also has a to-do list, including shopping for smaller buses and technology solutions for a micro-transit service he is launching.

Day One Highlights

    From School Bus Fleet:

New York state pupil transportation associations and agencies, law enforcement, and a safety technology supplier came together to commemorate Operation Safe Stop Day and unveil a stop-arm camera program on Thursday.

This year's event is a cooperative project supported by the New York Association for Pupil Transportation (NYAPT), the New York State Governor's Traffic Safety Committee, New York State Education Department, New York State School Bus Contractors Association, and state, county, city, and local law enforcement agencies, according to a news release from NYAPT.

The annual event held to promote school bus safety and educate the public about the dangers of illegally passing a stopped school bus when its red lights are flashing. Statewide surveys conducted by NYAPT have indicated that motorists pass stopped school buses 50,000 times per day while red lights are flashing, and students are being loaded or unloaded from school buses.
