Safest Way to School
FACT 1.pdf School buses are the safest mode of transportation for getting children back and forth to school.
FACT 2.pdf School buses are designed to be safer than passenger vehicles in avoiding crashes and preventing injury.
FACT 3.pdf School buses keep an annual estimated 17.3 million cars off roads surrounding schools each morning.
Students are about 50 times more likely to arrive at school alive if they take the bus than if they drive themselves or ride with friends. But did you also know that your child is much safer riding the bus than being driven by you? Today's school buses are built with safety in mind. They are tougher, cleaner and more diligently maintained than ever before. School bus drivers are required to receive special security and medical training, and undergo regular drug and alcohol testing to provide a safe ride for your child. Imagine a world with less traffic, cleaner air, and more affordable transportation. These are just some of the benefits that school bus ridership provides.
