School-bus standards upgraded

THE Shanghai education authority yesterday launched a new regulation on school buses, granting each bus a unique code to strengthen the administration of vehicles that carry students from kindergarten to high school.

School buses that fail to meet the new standards will have to stop using the yellow coating that distinguishes local school vehicles and cancel their unique status as school buses within 15 days, according to the Shanghai School Bus Safety Administration Regulation issued by the education, public security and traffic departments.

Yang Yongming, director of the youth protection department of the education bureau, said the main feature of the new regulation is that it covers all school buses from kindergartens to high schools and from public, private to international schools.

Shanghai currently has more than 2,500 school buses and starting next week, with the start of the new semester, each school bus will have a unique nine-digit number.
