Some schools organising their own bus services do not know it’s up to them to monitor safety standards, RNZ reports. In 2019, Auckland company Kiwi Coaches was found to have been running a dozen school buses that weren’t roadworthy, including some with brakes that didn’t work properly. When contacted by RNZ, schools reported they were not aware that Kiwi Coaches had been under investigation by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency.
