  • Transportation Bus Safety Tips and Terminals

    School Bus Safety Tips for Students, Parents, and Commuters!

    Slow Down/Expect Delays:

    • Expect school bus delays the first few weeks of school due to traffic congestion around campuses, schools regulating dismissals, and students becoming familiar with their bus drivers.
    • Back to School Means Sharing the Road with additional traffic on roads, in school zones and on school campuses. 

    School Zones

    • In a school zone when flashers are blinking, stop and yield to pedestrians crossing the crosswalk and pay attention to crossing guards.

    Buses on the Road:

    • If you're driving behind a bus, allow a greater following distance than if you were driving behind a car. It will give you more time to stop once the yellow lights start flashing.
    • It is illegal to pass a school bus that is stopped to load or unload children.
    • Never pass a bus from behind – or from either direction if you're on an undivided road – if it is stopped to load or unload children.
    • If the yellow or red lights are flashing and the stop arm is extended, traffic must stop.
    • Students should arrive at the bus stop 10 minutes early

    Requesting Changes/Adding Bus Stop Locations:

    • Major bus stop changes will be considered after September 2nd so routes can be stabilized and leveled. 
    • Many students are not enrolled until after school starts; therefore Student Transportation & Fleet Services cannot get a true analysis of the need until after that time.
    • Parents are encouraged to contact the Transportation Liaison at their child’s school for bus stop/route information.
