2018 TRANS TECH SST - SEATS

Transportation Collaborative, Inc. (Transportation Collaborative) is recalling certain 2011-2018 Transtech Bus SST, SST Flat Floor and ST Aero school buses, equipped with CE White/HSM SB11-26" and SB11-30" series, standard, unbelted, school bus seats, or SB11-30" series school bus seats with lap belts only. The foam in the knee impact area of the lower seat back may not absorb enough impact in the event of a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 222, "School Bus Passenger Seating and Crash Protection."

  • Hazard
    If the seat foam does not absorb enough impact energy, it can increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
  • Consumer Action
    Transportation Collaborative will notify owners, and dealers will install a styrene strip for additional padding, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 16, 2018. Owners may contact Transportation Collaborative customer service at 1-845-988-0419. Transportation Collaborative's number for this recall is 18E-056.
