School Bus Safety Inspection Program (Follow-Up Review)

The Department of Transportation is responsible for inspecting all school buses used in New York State. In our prior audit report 2000-S-10 , we found that certain improvements were needed in the inspection process. For example, a small percentage of the inspections were not performed on time, and the inspectors were not always supervised or trained as effectively as they could be. In our follow-up review, we found that substantial progress had been made in implementing the recommendations contained in our prior report.
