LEGAL OBSTACLES TO THE USE OF TEXAS SCHOOL BUSES FOR PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

The legal obstacles to the use of school buses for public transportation are created by three types of legal regulation (the implications of which are detailed in appendices) relating to the Texas education code, certification, and safety standards. Two courses of action are suggested for dealing with the core of the problem, namely, the education code which prohibits "unauthorized use" of school buses. Governmental units which possess the power to certify public transportation authorities are reviewed, and federal, state and local safety standards required of such vehicles are discussed.
