Apple Bus Company Conducts Training for All Bus Drivers
(August 12, 2019) Bus drivers from across the district gathered at the new Lake Contrary terminal to participate in bus training this week.
Apple Bus Company previously housed all 110 school buses at its north terminal, located on St. Joseph Avenue. Opening the second terminal will allow for greater efficiency for buses with routes in southern St. Joseph. The new Lake Contrary terminal will also serve as a regional hub for the company.
During training, drivers went over the new bus routes, learned basics about interacting with students, and how to address any parent concerns. Drivers practiced making tight turns on a serpentine course, parking, and overhead clearance awareness. They also received on-the-road training, with an emphasis on railroad crossing procedures.
Apple Bus Company conducts training with drivers throughout the school year to ensure student safety.
