Bus Maintenance & Inspections

 

Each year, our fleet is inspected approximately 103 times by the New York State Dept. of Transportation (DOT). We are proud to report that the Beekmantown Central School District has one of the best DOT Inspection pass rates in New York State.

The service department has had many accolades on their safety and maintenance quality.
