When students take the school bus, parents and others save time and money. The result is less traffic congestion and demand for parking to improving safety. Taking the bus is the safest and most practical way to get to school year-round. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, students are nearly eight times safer riding in a school bus than with their own parents and guardians in cars.

PUBLIC TRANSIT FOR TEACHERS, STAFF, AND SCHOOLS WITHOUT THEIR OWN BUSES.
Travel by bus and save money, and free up valuable time for whatever you like — reading, writing, listening to music or tackling emails. Public transportation is an easy way to get more out of your day while spending less. For every mile you ride, you’re also using about one-half of the fuel consumed by the average car, so you’ll be making a big impact from saving fuel to reducing carbon emissions.
