Special Note: According to the photographer, it was the districts first bus purchase. It is also the oldest bus in California working for a district. This bus is only used for parades and special events.

Hundreds of School Buses Sold with the Wrong Part

As reported by First Coast News, a problem was discovered with nearly 600 Florida school buses sold in the past four years. The problem: these school buses were sold with a refrigerant hose for the air conditioning system that did not meet the Florida state specifications. According to the report, the problem only affected Blue Bird buses. It was said that the non-compliant air conditioning hoses do not pose a threat to the students.
