2nd Semester school bus inspections must be performed by the Montana Highway Patrol by the end of January 31, 2019. 

Only school buses that pass inspection may be used to transport students and only school buses that pass inspection will receive state and county transportation reimbursement.

Type E buses must also be inspected by the highway patrol.  For the Type E buses, please use the Inspection Form TR13A.   

A school bus that fails to pass inspection will not be eligible for state and county reimbursement until the bus is re-inspected and approved by the inspecting officer.

The school district is responsible for contacting the Montana Highway Patrol for bus inspections.

For questions or assistance with entering inspections in the Pupil Transportation Program, please contact Donell Rosenthal at (406) 444-3024 or email drosenthal@mt.gov
