Requires a person who transports children in the care of a child care center in a vehicle designed and constructed for the accommodation of more than 10 passengers to transport the children in a school bus or a special purpose bus. Requires the owner of a special purpose bus to present the special purpose bus for inspection at the time and place designated by the state police department. Defines a child care center so that the term does not include a child care home, a child care ministry, an unlicensed day care provider, or a residential child care institution. Permits the use of a public transportation system to transport children if the motor carriage used is designed to carry at least 20 passengers. Provides that a preschool operated by a school corporation, a public elementary school, a public secondary school, or a child care center is not prohibited from contracting with a common carrier for incidental charter bus service for non-regular transportation as long as the carrier and the carrier's motor coach complies with federal safety regulations. Provides that if before July 1, 2001, a person owns a vehicle other than a school bus or a special purpose bus that is used to transport school children, the vehicle may be used to transport children until June 30, 2006.
