Delays in changing a bus route are costly: the county must subsidize the cost of the route in the meantime, and county residents are given less than optimal service until the route is changed.
Under the consolidated system, a bus driver is accountable to a rider in Montgomery County through Metro's management, which is accountable to a board of directors, of which two voting members are accountable to the Maryland suburbs through the state government, who in turn are informally accountable to the county government and the rider.
With Ride-On, however, the driver is directly accountable to the county government (as a county employee, or as an employee of a contractor responsible to the county), and the government, in turn, to the rider.

The full story of school bus production during the past year, however, derives more from the fact that last year's production data mirrors that of the 1997-98 school year when 41,080 school buses were manufactured.

 School Bus Recall for 1993-1999
The prompt remedy of school buses involved in safety recall campaigns is of special concern to the agency because the student occupants of a school bus could be subject to multiple injuries or even loss of life if a recalled safety defect or noncompliance condition is not corrected in a timely manner.
The success of the School Bus Safety Assurance Program is dependent on the willingness of each of us concerned with the transportation of children to review the enclosed recall listing and make every effort to ensure that buses within our purview are corrected as soon as possible.
A survey has also been sent to a representative sample of school bus owners involved in each recall campaign to identify recall related problems and to verify that the recall remedy is actually correcting the handrail snagging condition.

While Greyhound and GM continued to develop a unique parlor bus design which was to become the PD-4501 Scenicruiser, GM constructed a bus incorporating some of its features such as picture windows, air suspension, optional air conditioning and full silversiding.
Originally conceived as a 35-foot bus, Greyhound used a tandem-axle, 40-foot prototype called the GX-2 to successfully lobby for the lifting of restrictions against operation of 40-foot buses.
Although production of the new-look in the U.S. was discontinued in 1977, GM of Canada continued to produce them at their Ontario plant, changing the letters in the trapezoidal nameplate under the windshield from "GMC" to "GM."
