DPS transportation adds disinfecting lights to buses

VioSafe Lights Provide Continuous Disinfection for Increased Health and Safety


Denver Public Schools (DPS) is installing VioSafe lights, proven to kill germs, on many of its buses. The lights provide continuous disinfection of high-tough surfaces, increasing protection against COVID-19 and other viruses and bacteria.

VioSafe lights shine across a 12-foot radius, killing germs in its path. The lights help to dramatically reduce contamination while providing white light illumination thatís safe for humans and animals.

Ten buses have been outfitted with this new technology. The district plans to install the lights on its entire fleet by the end of January 2021

Our Government

White House


Proclamation on World Freedom Day, 2020: On World Freedom Day, we commemorate the historic fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, which liberated the people of East Germany from the grip of tyranny. This watershed event marked the triumph of freedom and liberty for hundreds of millions of people who rejected the oppression of Soviet communism and its Marxist-Leninist ideology. Today, we celebrate the blessings of freedom in Germany and across the world, and reaffirm our Nationís support for all who wish to be free.
