School Transportation News Communications, Tracking Devices Required for all NYC School Buses by Taylor Hannon
Council Member Ben Kallos introduced both bills, with Council Member Chaim Deutsch co-sponsoring Intro. 1148-2018 B. Kallos said he saw a need for the STOP Program after the recurring transportation problems that arose at the start of every new school year.
“Drivers would get lost and/or not know the routes,” explained Josh Jamieson, communications director for Kallos.
Another reason for the bill was a “freak snowstorm” in November, when special needs students were stuck on buses for over 10 hours, Jamieson added.
