Big Yellow School Bus is the safest way to travel:

"FACT: School buses are the safest mode of transportation for getting children back and forth to school". Source: U.S. Department of Transportation.

National studies show that "students are about 50 times more likely to arrive at school alive if they take the bus than if they drive themselves or ride with friends. But did you also know that your child is much safer riding the bus than being driven by you?" Click here to go to the National Highway Traffic Safety site

School Bus Fleet Fact Book statistics show that 554,000 Wisconsin Public School Students are transported by yellow buses. Nationwide the figure is 28,784,331 Students. Big yellow buses are efficient also; on average they last for 14.4 years in salted road states like Wisconsin, and 19.3 years on no-salt roads. Click here for more School Bus Fleet information
