Love the Bus

The American School Bus Council (ASBC) encourages school districts and operations to share how they #LoveTheBus during its 2018 Love The Bus Campaign.

Launched in 2007, Love The Bus is a month-long celebration held every February.  The event highlights the important role of the yellow school bus in education, with a particular focus on thanking school bus drivers for safely transporting 25 million children to and from school every day.  Love The Bus events are held at schools, school bus facilities, and other locations across the country.  The events raise awareness and appreciation for the experience of riding the bus to and from school, and they recognize the diverse group of professionals whose daily efforts make the yellow school bus part of the fabric of American life. Here’s three ideas to share how you Love The Bus.

  • Share on Facebook and Win. Please share your stories, videos and photos about how you observe Love The Bus with ASBC on Facebook and Twitter. Be sure to use #LoveTheBus so everyone can see what you're doing. This year, based on the number of likes and how the post commemorates the meaning behind Love The Bus, ASBC will award a $250 first prize, $150 second prize and $100 third place VISA gift cards to the top three selected posts.
  • Recognize a Special Driver. Submit a story to ASBC about a driver or employee in school transportation who deserves recognition for their efforts in supporting student safety. Share a story and photo by clicking here. Stories will be shared on the ASBC website this year. Let’s focus the national spotlight on the individuals who help safely transport children to and from school.
  • Be Creative. Operations are also encouraged to share the most creative and unique ways they #LoveTheBus. ASBC will choose and recognize the top three on its website in March. To enter, please go to this link.
