DOT FMCSA Extends ‘Under the Hood’ Waiver to Help Address School Bus Driver Labor Shortage

Earlier this year, USED partnered with USDOT to provide temporary relief for the ‘under the hood’ requirement to help address the school bus drive shortage. (Details on the blog!) The relief came via a 90-day waiver—set to extend at the end of the month. The plan all along was to grant two consecutive 90-day waivers, and that second waiver has now been announced. It means the flexibility will remain in place for the duration of the current school year, through June 30, 2022. AASA remains grateful to USED and USDOT for their immediate responsiveness to the November letter from more than a dozen K12 education and transportation groups.
