Buster The Bus
A program for Kindergarten to grade 2 students, Buster the Bus is a small robotic school bus with flashing lights and a safety crossing arm. Buster captivates students while speaking about school bus safety regarding issues such as: waiting for the bus, boarding, riding, and getting off the bus.
During the months of September/October schools and students participate in school bus emergency evacuation drills.
Think of Us on the Bus
“Think of us on the bus” is a bus safety awareness program that provides students with cue cards containing bus safety information, to help emphasize key safety points. The students are asked to create hand-drawn pictures detailing what bus safety means to them. These cards are then distributed by local police departments to motorists with busing traffic violations.
