Trends Security Training


We surveyed over 10,200 magazine readers last month with job titles of Transportation Director, Supervisor and Fleet Manager. The questions sought feedback on topics of automated school bus operations, driver roles and responsibilities that are discussed in this month’s issue. We also asked them to comment on current security needs, especially amid the continued increase of school shootings and incidents where students are transporting weapons via the yellow school bus. A total of 260 readers responded for a return rate of over 2.5 percent. Here is their feedback:
