  From Bus & Motorcoach News:

The U.S. Department of Treasury has confirmed that the Coronavirus Economic Relief for Transportation Services (CERTS) Program grant recipients are not required to subject their firm to a "Single Audit."

The Single Audit test model examines non-federal entity post-award reporting requirements under the Single Audit Act. These requirements may be facilitated by a more streamlined approach for SF-SAC/SEFA reporting.

This is noteworthy for operators because recently, a UMA Member was advised by their accountant that as a recipient of the CERTS grant, they may be required to comply with the "Single Audit" mandate that applies to many federal grant recipients..................

    From School Bus Fleet:

Thomas Built Buses has introduced the next phase of pedestrian protection technology on its buses.

The Saf-T-Zone system, which alerts the school bus driver to pedestrians outside the bus, comes just months after the company unveiled the Stage 2 Lights safety system. Stage 2 Lights alert students to more safely cross the street so that they can enter or exit a school bus. Both systems are now available to order.

"As we all know, school buses are the safest way to get to and from school," said Jed Routh, vice president of sales, marketing, and service for Thomas Built Buses. "But these two new safety systems will further enhance the driver's ability to protect pedestrians outside of the school bus, whether they are crossing the street to get on the bus, walking near the bus in potential blind spots, or disembarking from the bus. These new systems are yet another step in our journey to ensure that school buses remain the safest vehicles on the road.".............
