Riding a school bus leaves a lasting impression

Posted on May 20, 2009

CINCINNATI — The results of a survey conducted for First Student Inc. reveal that 42 percent of women and 35 percent of men who rode a bus to school remember the name of one of their school bus drivers.

Opinion Research Corp. questioned 1,000 adults for the survey. Baby boomers had the highest recall, with 47 percent of adults ages 45 to 54 and 42 percent of adults ages 55 to 64 stating they could remember the name of their school bus driver.

When asked to share their most memorable experiences on a school bus, most survey respondents recalled having fun and riding the bus with friends. Other fond memories included singing favorite songs, a bumpy ride in the back of the bus, budding romances, field trips and receiving special holiday and end-of-year treats from bus drivers.

Moreover, many of those surveyed still remember riding the bus on their first day of school.
