BEST school buses will now need women attendants

MUMBAI: BEST buses dedicated to ferry schoolchildren will have to compulsory have a woman attendant on board once schools reopen in January. The Mumbai District School Bus Safety Committee, chaired by the city police chief, made this decision at a meeting on Friday.

BEST operates about 200 services to ferry children from home to school and back. Deploying these buses costs the parents half of what private operators charge, said sources.

BEST officials, who did not wish to be quoted, said their conductors are trained to ensure the children's safety and there was no need for a woman attendant. "But if a woman attendant is indeed needed, it will be the parents' responsibility to hire one," said a BEST official.

A senior RTO official present at the meeting, said that every school will now come under the purview of the Motor Vehicle Act and "can be held responsible for flouting the School Bus Policy".

Committee member Indrani Malkani said these requirements are already in place in the policy. "The transport department will circulate the amended rules and regulations to schools," said Malkani.
