Navigating the Road Ahead
Across the country, student transportation operations have mobilized to meet new challenges as COVID-19 (the coronavirus) caused districts to suddenly shift to remote learning or even to close entirely.
Transportation professionals may feel as though they’ve been flying blind (or driving without a route sheet) as they come up with creative ways to transport meals, supplies, and more to their communities while keeping their staff safe and vehicles clean. Existing state and local regulations, continuous new directives from government, and virtual management have made many of these needs harder to meet.
In this recorded event, hear from four transportation professionals who have found ways to navigate the crisis through empathy, ingenuity, and technology. They discuss how their operations have changed, what best practices they have discovered, and what difficulties they are still facing. After their discussion, we opened the panel to audience questions.
