School districts are starting to get back on track after 18 months sitting still, but the nationwide driver shortage across industries is proving particularly perilous for student transportation. And while school bus fleet managers are always trying to find inventive ways to increase safety and reduce risks for their student riders, the current and evolving driver retention crisis means many are looking for ways to make the best with what they have. 


Though the world is still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, students need access to K12 education and parents and caregivers need to know their kids will get to school safely and on time.
