We are industry leaders when it comes to maintaining our buses to ensure passenger safety. Our safety begins with safe vehicles.
Our school district partners benefit from our recognized preventive maintenance program. Our preventive maintenance schedule goes above and beyond government requirements. Every school day, our drivers do a multi-point inspection before and after each route to check for maintenance issues that need immediate attention. The Ministry of Transportation requires a minimum of a Level 1 Inspection and a Level 2 inspection on an annual basis. Attridge far exceeds this standard with 3 Level 1 inspections and 2 Level 2 inspections annually. All inspections include examining everything from cosmetic issues to checking tires, brakes, engine performance and suspension.
The preventative maintenance program is guided by schedules and inventory maintained using our fleet management software. Our flexible fleet software connects; accounts, preventative maintenance, fleet cost, inspections and tire control with interfaces that allow parts management and ordering. The software permits the user to produce daily, weekly and monthly reports that schedule regular service from oil changes through safety inspections. The Preventative Maintenance Coordinator can then schedule, with the assistance of the Shop Foreman, mechanics and buses through one of our five repair facilities in order to ensure the highest level of repair and maintenance.
Vehicle maintenance in combination with an excellent driver results in a safe, reliable and successful school bus service.
Vehicles are maintained in accordance with manufacturer recommendations and requirements. Our preventive maintenance program meets and exceeds state and federal inspection requirements. In addition, we follow our company’s own preventive maintenance program, which includes:
Each of our buses is scheduled for a regular preventive maintenance inspection according to hours of operation, kilometers traveled, or days operated, depending on the type of operation and service being provided.
