A Better View: School Bus Mirror Adjustment Procedures
School bus transportation has proved to be the safest way to transport children to and from school. In 1998, federal requirements for school bus mirrors were updated to enhance the field-of-view around the bus. Along with the amendment, Transport Canada, in association with the “Ministère des Transports du Québec”, prepared school bus mirror adjustment procedures, which operators use to maximize the benefits of the new mirror systems.
Initially, the training program was distributed in 1998 in VHS format. Since then, Transport Canada has received many requests for copies of this product. As a result, the department has reproduced the program in DVD format to be used by school boards, bus operators and other stakeholders.
