REMINDER: SBF calls for Contractor Survey participants

Posted on May 11, 2011

TORRANCE, Calif. — If you haven’t yet completed SCHOOL BUS FLEET’s annual Contractor Survey, there are several days left to do so.

Last year’s survey covered topics ranging from unions and the U.S. healthcare reform bill’s possible effects on bus companies to bus buying, driver shortage and transit encroachment.

This year, we will touch on several of those topics, as well as address such issues as rising fuel prices, technician shortage and funding for reducing bus emissions.

Managers and executives at school bus contractor companies are encouraged to participate.

We’ve extended the deadline to submit responses to Monday, May 16.
