First Student in Ogden, Utah, received high marks for maintaining its buses to the highest standards. The location achieved a perfect score of 100 percent on its two Utah Highway Patrol (UHP) fleet inspections for 2016.
UHP conducts annual inspections on school buses each spring and fall. Troopers check all mechanical aspects and safety features to ensure school buses are operating at top conditions.
First Student received a perfect score on both UHP inspections this year. The location uses a fleet of more than 40 buses to transport approximately 2,000 Ogden School District students each school day.
“Our team works diligently to provide children and families in our community with safe, reliable transportation,” said Jared Bond, First Student Ogden location manager. “Receiving a perfect score on our fleet inspection shows our dedication to ensuring school buses remain the safest way for students to get to and from school.”
First Student maintenance standards are among the most stringent in the industry. Each of the company’s 47,000 buses follows a stringent daily, monthly and annual vehicle maintenance program. In addition, every First Student driver uses the latest technology to conduct a multi-point inspection at the beginning and end of each route.
