School Bus Safety
Most parents are concerned about the safety of their children travelling to and from school. Because of this, many parents elect to drive their children or have them driven by another adult. They believe their children are safest in a private car.
The fact is buses offer the safest form of road travel to school.
Recent research carried out by the University of Sydney indicates that buses offer the safest mode of road transport to and from school. The findings show that buses are:
- 7 times safer than using the family car.
- Over 31 times safer than walking to school.
- 228 times safer than cycling to school.
Care for Children
We are very aware of the need to care for children travelling on our buses. When children get onto the wrong school bus, the driver will contact the depot or arrange to transfer the child to the correct bus. Children will never be left stranded.
