Kansas to keep buses 25 years...

I just got an email from KNEA (Kansas National Education Association) stating that the legislature will be passing a law to allow Kansas schools to keep their buses for 25 years beyond their date of manufacture. The law is currently 20 years.

I guess that will tighten up some of the availability of buses here in Kansas. It will also hurt some of the manufacture and sale of new buses this summer. I wonder how much impact on the economy that will have???

Just an FYI.

It shouldn't affect it too much. Just because they can doesn't mean they will. CT doesn't have a legal age limit, as long as the bus passes inspection for the year it was built, it's legal to keep running it. However, most contractors here retire their buses after 10-15 years, and most district fleets retire them between 12-20. Contracts often have an age limit much lower than the legal limit, and districts often replace buses earlier to keep the parents happy.
