State Police Bus Inspection Program Shrinks

Print More

By law, the yellow and black school buses owned by various Michigan school districts and private companies, are to be inspected by the Michigan State Police once a year. Currently, the number of inspectors has been cut from 12 to 4; those four now have the task of servicing more 17, 000 buses throughout the state. Paul Wegmeyer, Transportation Specialist, for Holt Schools Transportation says that there is legislation seeking to put the responsibility off on districts which he believes the industry isn’t ready for just yet. Kellie Dean, President and CEO of Dean Transportation, believes otherwise. Focal Point’s Jazmin Bailey has this story.
