Yellow Buses = Safety

The U.S. federal government recognizes that yellow school buses are the safest mode of surface transportation, outranking passenger vehicles by more than eight to one in the number of fatalities.

School buses are manufactured to comply with 37 Federal motor vehicle Safety Standards, the highest number of standards issued for public transportation
Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.

All employees strive to identify the safest way to operate, approaching safety from a holistic point of view, from the passengers to the workplace.
