### When beginning the governor cut-in test, the air system should be

• A.

Between 85 and 100 PSI

• B.

Greater than 100 PSI

• C.

Less than 85 PSI

• D.

Fully charged

D. Fully charged
Explanation
In order to perform the governor cut-in test, the air system should be fully charged. This means that the air pressure in the system should be at its maximum level, ensuring that there is enough pressure to operate the governor effectively. If the air system is not fully charged, it may not provide sufficient power to the governor, leading to inaccurate test results. Therefore, having a fully charged air system is crucial for conducting a successful governor cut-in test.

### What PSI is not acceptable for the front and rear brakes during the governor cut-out test?

• A.

120 PSI

• B.

110 PSI

• C.

135 PSI

• D.

145 PSI

D. 145 PSI
Explanation
During the governor cut-out test, the governor is responsible for regulating the air pressure supplied to the brakes. If the air pressure exceeds the maximum acceptable limit, it can cause the brakes to become too sensitive and potentially lead to brake lock-up or loss of control. Therefore, a PSI of 145 is not acceptable for the front and rear brakes during the governor cut-out test.

### A bus may not drop more than ___ PSI during the STATIC brake test

• A.

0

• B.

1

• C.

2

• D.

3

C. 2
Explanation
During the STATIC brake test, a bus should not drop more than 2 PSI. This is because a drop in pressure beyond this limit could indicate a potential issue with the braking system, such as a leak or malfunction. By setting a maximum drop limit, it ensures that the brakes are functioning properly and can effectively stop the vehicle in case of an emergency.

### When performing the APPLIED brake test, all of the following are TRUE, EXCEPT,

• A.

The engine is off

• B.

Wheels are chocked

• C.

The parking brake is applied

C. The parking brake is applied
Explanation
In the APPLIED brake test, all of the given statements are true except for "The parking brake is applied." This implies that in the APPLIED brake test, the parking brake is not applied. It is important to note that the APPLIED brake test is a procedure used to test the effectiveness of the service brakes when the vehicle is stationary. Therefore, the parking brake should not be applied during this test.

If done in the proper order, the parking brake should be disengaged

• D.

The engine is off, with the electrical off

D. The engine is off, with the electrical off
Explanation
When performing the LOW PRESSURE WARNING test, all of the given statements are true except for "The engine is off, with the electrical off." During the test, the engine should be off but the electrical system should be on to ensure that the low-pressure warning system is functioning properly. The warning should occur between 55 and 75 PSI, and the parking brake should be disengaged in the proper order.

### The fire extinguisher needs to be ______ rated.

• A.

Electrically

• B.

ABC

• C.

Liquid

• D.

Chemically

B. ABC
Explanation
The fire extinguisher needs to be ABC rated because ABC refers to the type of fires it can effectively extinguish. ABC rated fire extinguishers are capable of putting out fires caused by ordinary combustible materials (such as wood or paper), flammable liquids (such as gasoline or oil), and electrical equipment (such as appliances or wiring). This rating ensures that the fire extinguisher is versatile and can be used in various emergency situations.

### While on dispatch, it's ok to wear sandals since you're not scheduled to be driving.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement is incorrect. Even while on dispatch, it is not okay to wear sandals because there may be situations where the person on dispatch may need to drive unexpectedly. Wearing sandals can be unsafe and can hinder the ability to operate a vehicle properly. Therefore, it is important to always wear appropriate footwear while on dispatch.

### Operations staff members are held to a higher standard than drivers and should always set a good example regardless of whether or not they are on-duty.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Operations staff members are held to a higher standard because they are responsible for managing and overseeing the operations of a company or organization. They have a greater level of authority and are expected to lead by example. Even when they are off-duty, their actions can still reflect on the organization they work for. Therefore, it is important for operations staff members to always set a good example, regardless of their on-duty or off-duty status.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### How often do we hold operations staff meetings during the academic year?

• A.

Weekly

• B.

Every 2 weeks

• C.

Once a quarter

B. Every 2 weeks
Explanation
The correct answer is "Every 2 weeks" because holding operations staff meetings on a weekly basis might be too frequent and time-consuming, while having them once a quarter might not provide enough opportunity for timely updates and discussions. Therefore, scheduling meetings every 2 weeks strikes a balance between regular communication and efficient use of time.

### The bus pulls up to a stop with a passenger waiting in a wheelchair and the ramp does not work. Does the driver need to inform dispatch of this situation?

• A.

Yes

• B.

No

A. Yes
Explanation
The driver needs to inform dispatch of the situation because the passenger waiting in a wheelchair cannot board the bus without the ramp. Dispatch needs to be notified so they can send another bus or make alternative arrangements for the passenger. This is important to ensure the passenger's safety and provide them with the necessary assistance.

### Anteater Express drivers must permit individuals who request to use the ramp to enter the vehicle via the ramp, regardless of whether or not they appear like they need to use it.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The statement is true because Anteater Express drivers are required to allow individuals who request to use the ramp to enter the vehicle via the ramp, regardless of their appearance or whether they actually need to use it. This policy ensures equal access and accommodation for all passengers, regardless of their physical abilities or disabilities.

Rate this question:

### A driver calls you on dispatch saying the ramp isn't working properly. Should you instruct the driver to get other passengers to help them lift and/or drag a wheelchair so that the passenger can be accommodated?

• A.

Yes

• B.

No

B. No
Explanation
Instructing the driver to get other passengers to help lift and/or drag a wheelchair is not a suitable solution. It is the responsibility of the driver to ensure the safety and comfort of the passengers. Instructing passengers to lift and/or drag a wheelchair can be risky and may cause harm to the passengers or damage to the wheelchair. Instead, the driver should follow proper protocols and procedures to address the issue with the ramp and ensure that the passenger is accommodated safely.

### An Anteater Express driver is involved in an accident and reports to you on dispatch that the other party involved is yelling at them. Which of the following things are acceptable for you to tell our driver to do?

• A.

Apologize for causing the accident

• B.

Ask people if they are injured

• C.

Lock themselves in the bus and wait for police and/or a supervisor to arrive

• D.

Yell back at the other driver

B. Ask people if they are injured
C. Lock themselves in the bus and wait for police and/or a supervisor to arrive
Explanation
The correct answer is to ask people if they are injured and to lock themselves in the bus and wait for police and/or a supervisor to arrive. This is because the driver's priority should be the safety and well-being of the passengers. Asking if anyone is injured shows concern and empathy, while locking themselves in the bus ensures their own safety and prevents any further altercation with the other driver. Waiting for the authorities or a supervisor to arrive ensures that the situation can be properly assessed and managed. Yelling back at the other driver or apologizing for causing the accident may escalate the situation and is not a recommended course of action.
