Bus Fleet Passes Inspection as New Buses Arrive

As San Diego Unified's bus and transportation fleet maintenance facility passed its annual inspection by the local Air Pollution Control District (APCD), 17 new buses arrived, part of a 50-vehicle order that should be completely filled in the next few weeks. The new buses include seat belts for the students, GPS and dual fans for the drivers. The new buses are now available for public inspection – all are invited to stop by, take a look and fill out a survey. The APCD inspection was passed successfully, thanks to a team effort lead by Tony Rasso, civil engineering project manager, and contractor, Northwest Pump.
