Kindergarten can't get vehicle on road

SHENYANG - A kindergarten in Shenyang, capital of Liaoning province, is frustrated because the newly bought school bus can't get a license plate.

The kindergarten bought the bus, made by Zhengzhou Yutong Bus Co, for 240,000 yuan ($38,000) in November. In the past two months, Zhang Xiujuan, deputy head of Shenyang Shangye Kindergarten, tried repeatedly to apply for a license plate without success.

"Without a license, we can only keep the bus parked here."

She said the kindergarten has 380 children and about 30 of them live far away. So the school decided to buy the bus.

"I was happy to hear my daughter could take the school bus. It's safer than my mother taking her to school by bus," said Hu Mingbo. His 4-year-old daughter was enrolled in the kindergarten for nearly a year.

"I can't understand why a qualified school bus can't get a license but the illegal ones can."

According to Liaoshen Evening News, the local transportation authority also felt disappointed that there was no regulation in the city to approve a school bus license plate.

Gong Bin, an official with Shenyang transportation bureau, spoke of various transportation regulations in the city, the province and the country, but said that none specifically addresses urban school buses.
