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.

"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.
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.
