DID YOU KNOW...

Bus service is provided to approximately 70% of TCAPS students and local private and parochial school students. Routes include more than 3,000 bus stops in a 300 square mile area and drivers travel more than 7,000 miles per day.

Safety is of concern to all our bus drivers and transportation staff. Michigan weather can cause school delays and closings, especially in winter. On days when weather may make traveling difficult, a decision on whether to cancel or delay school is made by 5:15 a.m. and is broadcast on all local television and radio stations, and a special "hot line" at 231-933-1955.

DID YOU KNOW...
school bus lights are just like traffic lights?

 "Safety Around School Bus Stop"

A friendly reminder to all drivers to be alert for school buses that are stopped or slowing down to pick up or drop off children. Please help keep our children safe by following the rules of the road.

  • Yellow Lights Flashing - Prepare to Stop
  • Red Lights Flashing - STOP

 

 

DO YOU KNOW...
there are areas to stay clear of when getting on and off the bus?

Because school buses are so large, there are blind spots around the bus where it can be hard to see small children as they are preparing to board or after exiting a bus. Parents can help bus drivers keep children safe by discussing the danger zones shown in the photo on the left.

  • Front Danger Zone: It is never safe to walk close to the front of the bus. Children should walk five giant steps ahead of the bus before crossing in front of it.
  • Side Danger Zone: Children should always stay three giant steps away from the side of the bus.
  • Rear Danger Zone: Never walk behind the school bus.
  • Rear Danger Zone: Walk (don't run) three giant steps away from the bus when exiting the bus.
  • When the bus approaches, step back from the curb at least three giant steps.
