Post-Route Inspections

End of Route Inspections—

After completing each student delivery route, the school bus operator shall stop and park the bus and inspect the bus, including the entire length of the interior of the bus, to ensure that all students are off of the bus and to otherwise inspect the interior. When the operator is delivering students to school, this inspection shall if possible be completed at each school site. When the route is a from-school route, the operator shall perform this inspection at a safe location a short distance from where the final student or students left the bus.
