    Eleven-year-old Hannah Francis was killed when a bus carrying 31 passengers crashed near Turoa ski field in 2018.

    These include mandating seatbelts in alpine environments, road improvements and legislating a code of practice.

    NZ Bus and Coach Association.CEO Ben McFadgen says they're good initiatives.
