Choosing the school bus makes sense

That recognizable yellow school bus just might be your child’s ticket to the safest ride to and from Canterbury School. Yellow school buses are a great American success story. Reports show that they are the safest vehicles on the highway with a safety record that is unparalleled in the transportation industry. National studies show that yellow buses are by far the safest form of transportation on our roads – about 2,000 times safer than the family car!

Why should my family consider riding the bus?

Riding the bus benefits our school, our children and our community:

  • Yellow buses are very safe
  • Increased bus ridership decreases the number of cars on our roads
  • No waiting in car pool lines
  • Decreased traffic congestion, idling time, and smog forming emissions
  • Poor air quality hurts children to a greater extent than many other populations

What do my children need to know to ride the bus safely?

  • Stay out of the danger zone: So that the driver can see you, always stand at least five giant steps (10 feet) away from the bus and never cross behind it.
  • Never try to pick up anything that falls under the bus – always tell the driver.
  • Stay a safe distance from the road while waiting for the bus.
  • When you get on or off the bus, make sure the bus safety lights are flashing.
  • Be alert to traffic. When getting on of off the bus, look left, right then left again before crossing the street.
  • Wait for the driver to say if is safe to cross the street, and always cross in front of the bus.
  • Stay in your seat and talk quietly so the driver isn’t distracted.
