August Tips of the Month: Safety Tips for Riding the Bus

Here are safety tips that you should share with your children that ride the bus to school:

  • Don't play in the street while waiting for the school bus.

  • Do NOT lie down in the street.

  • Line up away from the street or road as the school bus approaches. Wait until the bus has stopped and opens the door before stepping onto the roadway.

  • Use the hand rail when getting on or off the bus.

  • Once on the bus, find a seat and stay seated.

  • Talk quietly with the person next to you, loud noises or talking can distract the bus driver.

  • Never put head, arms or hands out of the window.

  • Keep aisles clear.

  • Wait until the bus has stopped completely before getting up from your seat. then, walk to the front of the bus to exit, using the hand rail.

  • Move immediately to the sidewalk or road shoulder out of traffic once you have exited the bus.

  • Never reach under a school bus, to get anything that has rolled or fallen underneath.

  • If you need to cross the street, walk 10 feet in front of the bus along the side of the road until you turn around and see the bus driver. Make sure that the driver can see you, make eye contact. Wait for a signal from the driver before beginning to cross the street. When the driver signals, walk across the road, keeping an eye out for sudden traffic changes. Look left, right, left before crossing the street.

  • Do not cross the enter line of the road until the driver has signaled that it is safe for you to begin walking.

  • Stay away from the bus' rear wheel at all times.
