Fairfax, VA – April 22, 2016 – Doran Manufacturing, LLC, of Cincinnati, OH, a producer of transportation safety products has become an affiliated partner of Trailways Transportation System, Inc. (Trailways).  Doran manufactures LED safety lights for transportation fleets, including tail lights, flashing lights, brake lights, clearance lights, turn lights, stop/tail/turn lights and school bus stop arm light kits.  Doran’s other products* include light monitors that work even in total darkness, allowing passengers to see points of exit during emergency evacuations.

The Doran 360™ TPMS uses a valve-stem-mounted sensor to transmit tire pressures and temperatures wirelessly to a monitor/display for the driver to see current data and to be notified of low pressure or high temperature alerts. In addition, the Doran 360™ TPMS has the capability of transmitting direct-pressure data in real time to third-party software and mobile communications devices.  The systems are designed for simple programming and installation.

“Nothing is more important to Trailways than the safety of our passengers,” said Ron Moore, Trailways’ Chairman. “Welcoming Doran as an affiliated partner reinforces our commitment to keeping safety first and foremost.”

Equipped with an in-house engineering staff and tool-and-die shop, the company still produces electrical and electronic interconnectors and related products for original equipment manufacturers. Among these are off-the-shelf, semi-custom and custom terminal boards and blocks.

In the early 1970s, Doran turned its focus to vehicle safety products, introducing safety light monitors for the school bus market. The exterior light monitors help to prevent accidents by alerting bus drivers to malfunctioning LED and incandescent vehicle lights, due to problems such as loose wiring, cut connectors and blown fuses.

Doran’s emergency exit monitor sounds a buzzer and turns on an indicator light if an emergency door, window or hatch is violated. The Sleeping Child Check® monitor helps to ensure that the driver won’t leave any children on board at the end of a route; it forces the driver to walk past every passenger seat to the rear of the bus to deactivate it.
