Parkway Bus Fleet Scores High on Annual State Inspection

For the 17th year in a row, the Parkway Transportation Department has been awarded the Certificate of Fleet Excellence from the Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Exemplary Fleet Maintenance award from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) for an outstanding showing in its annual school bus inspection. The inspectors thoroughly examine each bus, including brakes, steering, safety equipment, emergency exits, lights, crossing control arm - in all, over 150 individual items on each bus. The Missouri Highway Patrol inspected a total of 148 Parkway buses, with 142 buses approved on initial inspection with absolutely no defects. Four buses had minor defects and two buses were placed out of service - one for a fuel line leak and one for an inoperative crossing control arm. All six defective buses were repaired, re-inspected and approved while the inspectors were still on site.
