Winter Maintenance

As the weather continues to grow colder, winter will be on its way. With the winter season comes harsh weather and dangerous road conditions. In order to travel safely, bus and truck drivers should be cautious when maneuvering the roads this season.

There are some simple steps for drivers to take in order to ensure proper winter maintenance:


  1. Before road travel, check road conditions, weather conditions, and traffic reports. This will allow you to plan out your trip properly.
  2. Determine at least one main route of travel along with two alternative routes. Once the routes are determined, let a few people know your plans. Let them also know your departure and arrival times as well.
  3. Check your tire tread and tire pressure before any road travel. This will not only help with travel safety, but fuel efficiency as well.
  4. Ensure all fluid levels are full before any road travel. Any low levels during travel could cause breakdowns.
