According to news sources, a recall is being issued for about 333 units of Trans Tech school buses with model years 2009 through 2011 due to a faulty self-latching mechanism that can potentially fail to hold seats in their place, thereby increasing the risk of injury to passengers.
The recalled buses have faulty latches that can potentially fail to hold the seat cushion, which in turn can end up flipping out of position in case of a crash, posing an increased risk of injury to passengers. As a result, the recalled school buses violate federal safety standard number 222 and will reportedly be repaired by a local dealer free of charge.
For additional information regarding the recalled buses, consumers may also contact the company directly at 1-845-988-2333.
