Improving School Bus Transportation Safety


In this NPS-CHDS Viewpoints, NPS-CHDS master’s graduate Ryan Whitehead talks about the correlation between his thesis research and his position as a Transportation Security Inspector with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in Boston. Ryan’s research focuses on school bus security and explores some of the potential security threats that are created by a lack of standardized regulations in the school bus transportation industry. By applying proven transportation security strategies, Ryan is able to identify weaknesses in the system and offer recommendations for new federal regulations governing the school bus transportation industry.
