National School Bus Safety Week is an active and evolving public education program and an opportunity for parents, students, teachers, motorists, school bus operators, school administrators, and other interested parties to come together and address the importance of school bus safety. Designed to promote school bus safety, school districts throughout the country observe School Bus Safety Week - held during the third week in October each year.
Student Transportation Services Brant Haldimand Norfolk has created a new route identification system for students transferring from one bus to another at school sites. Transfer buses have been tagged with a specific animal – including frog, sheep, turtle and zebra – to allow students to better identify their bus, rather than the bus route number. At this time only transfer buses have adopted the new identification system. All elementary school buses will be assigned an animal tag in the fall of 2016.
“With the help of the animals, the important process of identifying the right bus to take is made easier for students,” said Manager of Transportation Services.
