Portland Schools’ Bus Safety Reports Are Alarming

According to recent research published by the Oregon Department of Education, Portland school buses are in dire shape.  Since 2007, certified state as well as school district inspectors have been responsible for keeping buses in safe running condition.

Portland Oregon School BusAccording to the data, Oregon’s school bus inspectors found buses that were in such poor shape that they had to be immediately taken out of service.  The true scope of this problem remains unknown.  As Steven Huillet, former Director of Pupil Transportation for ODE, explained to reporters at KVAL: “we have two people… assigned to inspect the school buses for 196 districts.”

Reports released by On Your Side inspectors reveal that the ODE has not been able to inspect any district’s buses more than once in the past five years.  Steven Huillet added that, in his estimation, upward of three quarters of our state’s buses go un-inspected on any given year.  How is your school district doing?  Read the stats here.
