Bus Safety

We take the responsibility of safely transporting children to and from school very seriously. Our drivers receive biannual training in transportation safety that exceeds state licensing requirements, and their driving records are reviewed regularly.  We believe that transportation safety is everyone's job, so we teach children how to conduct themselves on the bus and encourage them to take responsibility for choices.

Our brand-new, state-of-the-art buses include the following safety features:

  • High back seats with three-point lap and shoulder belts
  • Back up camera system 
  • 3 emergency exits
  • Upgraded braking system
  • Meets all National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) safety standards
  • Altoona Tested and approved
