NORTH YORKS LIKELY TO DROP BUSES AGE-LIMIT PLAN

Plans by North Yorkshire CC to force school bus operators into buying newer vehicles would increase the cost to the authority by almost £500,000, the Yorkshire Post reports (p6).

The plan to bring schools buses in line with fare-paying services would mean that buses could be no older than 10 years old. The lowest tender for the service under the proposed changes would be £1.51m, compared with £1.08m with no restriction on the age of buses.

However, it looks likely that the council will instead introduce a rigorous system of bus safety checks.
