My Bus Safety Rules...

I work for Laidlaw- Schoolway in Mpls,MN.


"Contracted transportation can bring state-of-the art programs
 to small and large systems alike, providing a unique combination 
of resources and the responsiveness of a local firm."

   Laidlaw Transit Inc. 

Here are my bus rules, care of company policy...

Rules of School Bus Safety
1. Dress properly for the weather. Make sure all drawstrings, ties, straps, etc. on all 
clothing, backpacks and other items, are shortened or removed to lessen the likelihood of 
them getting caught in bus doors, railings or aisles.
2. Arrive on time at the bus stop and stay away from the street while waiting for the bus.
3. Stay away from the bus until it stops completely and the driver signals you to board.
 Enter in single file without pushing. Always use the handrail.
4. Take a seat right away and remain seated facing forward. Keep your hands, arms and head
 inside the bus.
5. Help keep the bus neat and clean. Keep belongings out of the aisle and away from 
emergency exits. Eating and drinking are not allowed on the bus.
6. Always listen to the driver's instructions. Be courteous to the driver and other 
students. Sit with your hands to yourself and avoid making noises that would distract the 
driver or bother other passengers. Remain seated, keeping your hands, arms and head inside 
the bus at all times.
7. Wait until the bus pulls to a complete stop before standing up. Use the handrail when 
exiting the bus.
8. Stay out of the danger zone next to the bus where the driver may have difficulty seeing 
you. Take five giant steps away from the bus and out of the danger zone, until you can see 
the driver and the driver sees you. Never crawl under a bus.
9. If you must cross the street after you get off the bus, wait for the driver's signal and
 then cross in front of the bus. Cross the street only after checking both ways for traffic.
10. Never run back to the bus, even if you dropped or forgot something.
Safety Is For Life!
