The Indiana State Police, in accordance with state law, conduct inspections of all school buses used to transport children to public and private schools.
All buses are inspected annually, and buses more than 12 model years old are inspected biannually.
While school bus inspection reports are a public record, historically there was not a simple way for parents, school officials, or the public in general to view the thousands of inspection reports prepared by state police personnel each school year.
To make school bus records more accessible, a couple of agencies have developed a public access website where school bus inspection records can be viewed from the comfort of a parents' home computer.
The all encompassing goal of this public access portal website is to provide parents, school officials, and the public in general, an easy to navigate website with up-to-date school bus inspection information.
The Indiana State Police encourage parents to use this valuable resource to track the inspection reports of their child's school bus. The only information a parent needs to successfully navigate the website is the bus number of their child's bus.
