Share your safety tips

Posted on June 17, 2010

SBF wants your contributions for a forthcoming article on ways to enhance safety at school bus operations.

The feature will consist of a variety of tips – whether they’re big or small, old or new. We plan to cover a wide range of safety areas, including on the bus, during loading/unloading, in the bus lot and in the garage.

We’re counting on including lots of submissions from all across the pupil transportation industry, so don’t hesitate to share your ideas with us.

Send detailed tips to [email protected].
