Is it healthy for my child to ride the school bus?

The school bus keeps children – and the environment – safe. By providing safe, reliable, and convenient transportation for millions of school children, school buses reduce the number of cars that would otherwise be on the road. Each school bus route takes approximately 36 cars off the road.  The school bus helps parents save money on gasoline, reduces traffic congestion (especially around school walking zones, where our children are most vulnerable) and also reduces the nation’s dependence on oil.
