DPS DHURI has fleet of school buses. The school operates its buses on specific routes covering almost whole of Dhuri, Malerkotla & Sangrur. Route planning is done considering factors like availability of transport requests by the parents, availability of seats, common bus stops, motor able roads etc. While the buses are run on the request of the parents security of the students is the prime concern. Every bus is having a trained and eligible driver, a conductor, a transport coordinator on school rolls, a nanny during the initial drop and a teacher on duty. All our drivers are well experienced, periodically trained on school bus safety rules and regulations. Transport coordinators are the bonafide employees of the school, duly trained on basic first aid and fire fighting skills to ensure proper handling during any emergency. A first aid kit duly checked and monitored by the school medical advisor for validity of medicines is always there in every bus, under the control of the transport coordinator. All buses are manufactured as per safety norms and undergo stringent maintenance checks. Every bus is equipped with mobile phone for quick connectivity with the parents. GPS and CCTV are other features of the buses. Grooming check of the drivers/conductors, maintenance snag records, monthly inspection of buses and routine maintenance are few procedures followed to ensure smooth operations.
