Alabama State Trooper Bus Task Force is out inspecting buses through the month of September.  As we asked them to, they are coming to our shops rather than roadside inspections. Thankfully, these guys know all about our shutdown during the Covid crisis. The task force has been asking questions and are very understanding that we are all dealing with getting our buses back to being mechanically fit and operational. We thank them for doing a good job keeping us all safe.
