School Bus Safety Redefined: The Advantages of an Advanced & Active Driver Safety System


Thursday, October 24, 2019 — 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

Safety and the school bus go hand-in-hand, and school districts and transportation providers have expressed interest to bring these technologies to the school bus industry. Well, they’ve arrived! But how do these advanced safety systems work – specifically active collision mitigation technology and electronic stability control?

IC Bus and Bendix have been working hand-in-hand over the last year and a half to bring this technology to market, working with school bus customers around the country to demonstrate this technology and help them onboard their drivers to make sure they understand how these technologies work.

On October 24th at 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET, industry experts Chris Gutierrez and T.J. Thomas will explain what active collision mitigation technology really means, why it’s important, and how it works.

SPEAKERS:

Chris Gutierrez, Chief Engineer, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, IC Bus
T.J. Thomas, Director, Marketing & Customer Solutions - Controls, Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems, LLC.

5 Critical Things You Need to Know About MAP-21


Originally aired: Thursday, February 7, 2019 — 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act - or MAP-21 - is bringing new transportation regulations geared toward updating and standardizing the safety and training requirements for school bus drivers. Ultimately, these changes will help schools and districts come into compliance with federal laws that will make students and staff safer while on the road.

During this on-demand webinar, the School Bus Safety Company will break down the new regulations to better explain what MAP-21 means; how it will affect school bus training in 2019, 2020 and beyond; and how to bridge the gap between your current safety & training program with the new topics and mandates under the MAP-21 regulations.

How to Transport More Students Without More Buses


Originally aired: Tuesday, December 4, 2018 — 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

Providing home-to-school transportation and access to school programs is becoming increasingly complex. The expansion of foster care and homeless student services, continued budget constraints, and expanded educational program offerings are stretching traditional transportation networks to, and in many cases beyond, their limits. Transportation directors are increasingly going to have to look at alternatives to their existing resources to find a way to provide the services their communities expect. Finding the right partner can make your job easier while also improving the level of service you are able to deliver.

This discussion focuses on how to:

  • Prioritize opportunities for partnerships
  • Define both the cost and value of the services
  • Establish contracts that promote safety, reliability, and high-quality service delivery
