Just like in the classroom, students will be adjusting to several changes on the school bus this year. State health officials are requiring bus drivers and students to wear a mask, limit seating to 50% capacity, and install regular cleaning protocols. Bethany Schubert vice President of Trobec’s Bus Service says in addition to the state requirements, they’ve also purchased some electrostatic sprayers for all their school and charter buses.

The cleaners use a specialized solution designed to disinfect hard-to-reach areas that manual cleaning can miss in a quick and more efficient manner. Schubert says they are in need of bus drivers more than ever as the pandemic has greatly impacted the number of applicants they usually receive.
