Data on a National Scale about School Bus Transportation

A typical school bus carries 54 children.

 

An any given school day in the United States, approximately 480,000 school buses are at work transporting over 25 million students.

 

More than half of all students take the bus to school.

 

School buses are an efficient way of transporting students.

 

Each bus replaces about 36 cars that otherwise would be needed to transport kids to their schools.

 

If there were no buses, 17,333,333 cars would be needed to drive students to school. On average, each school bus travels about 12,000 miles annually, for a national total of 5,760,000,000 miles.

 

This saves approximately 62,399,998,800 miles of personal, individual car use each year.



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.
