Downingtown Area School District

Today's school bus is designed to strict federal and state regulations in order to provide the safest form of transportation in the United States.  Every year each school bus used in transporting school students is subject to two (2) official PA State Inspections.  In addition, the Pennsylvania State Police conduct one scheduled inspection of all buses each year, and periodically perform surprise inspections.  Also, each driver is required to visually inspect his or her bus and to complete a “safety check” prior to the start of each trip.
