Transportation

Did you know...  
          A School Bus is:
172 times safer than your family automobile.
8 times safer than passenger trains.
4 times safer than transit buses.
4 times safer than intercity buses.
8 times safer than scheduled airlines.


Every year, approximately 440,000 public school buses travel 4.3 billion miles to transport 23.5 million to and from school and school-related activities.  Swartz Creek Transportation covers 71.43 square miles.

Motorists Should:

  • Be aware it is illegal in every state to pass a school bus stopped to load/unload students.

  • Know and understand laws governing motorist’s driving behavior near a school bus.

  • Learn the "flashing signal light system" that school bus drivers use to alert motorists if they are going to stop to load/unload students.

  • Know and understand that yellow flashing lights indicate the bus is preparing to stop to load or unload children. Motorists should slow down and prepare to stop their vehicles.

  • Know and understand that red flashing lights and extended stop arms indicate that the bus has stopped, and that children are getting on or off. Motorists MUST stop their cars.

  • Begin moving only when the red flashing lights are turned off.

  • Watch out for young people who may be thinking about getting to school, but may not be thinking about getting there safely.

  • Slow Down. Watch for children walking in the street, especially if there are no sidewalks in the neighborhood. Watch for children playing and gathering near bus stops.

  • Be Alert. Children arriving late for the bus may dart into the street without looking for traffic.
