    • Description from http://www.thomasbus.com/prod_school/customer.asp
  • District tests high-tech inspection tool
    • "LAS VEGAS — An innovative safety inspection system that uses handheld readers and strategically positioned “tags” on school buses is helping to verify that bus drivers at Clark County School District in Las Vegas,, perform their pre- and post-trip inspections.
