School Bus and School Pupil Activity Bus Inspection and Maintenance Guide.
Sowash, Fred W.
This publication deals with suggested maintenance standards that apply to vehicles used for pupil transportation in California and covers all the safety-related systems that are common to most buses. The guide has been prepared to help all school bus and school pupil activity bus operators set up an inspection and preventive maintenance program that will meet the need to conform to the California Vehicle Code sections, and it could be used as a training aid for bus drivers, mechanics, service personnel, driver trainers, and supervisory personnel. Suggested forms that operators may use in developing an inspection and maintenance program are included. The chapters contain information about (1) daily and weekly bus inspections with checklist and reports; (2) setting up a vehicle inspection and preventive maintenance program that meets state requirements; (3) the records required for controlling and evaluating a preventive maintenance program; and (4) the facilities, equipment, and personnel needed for shop maintenance and repair of school buses.
