2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill requires an agency, board of education, nonpublic school, or school bus contractor that operates school buses to display across the rear of the school bus a phone number, website address, or other identifying information that allows the public to report a bus driver's misconduct while operating the school bus. A school bus operator that displays the identifying information would be required to use letters of a color that contrasts with the color of the bus. Current regulations of the Department of Transportation (N.J.A.C.13:20-49C.18 (d)) provide that there can be no lettering on the front or rear of a school bus other than the words "SCHOOL BUS." This bill allows school bus operators to display identifying information that would permit the public to report a bus driver's misconduct. The bill is to take effect immediately and be applicable to the next school year beginning on July 1st.
