Proper bus maintenance is very important, as it will prolong the service life of your buses and save you money in the long run. It is not possible to have a fleet of buses in good running order without a proper long-term maintenance plan.
Age of Bus
Some types of bus maintenance are age dependent. So, identify the ages, makes, and models of each bus. Consider what needs to be done based on age of the bus.
Some types of bus maintenance are season dependent. For example, tires may need to be checked or changed before winter.
Your jurisdiction may dictate certain types of maintenance. Be aware of what rules govern your jurisdiction.
